Best Practice for MS SQL 2005 Logging

We have to log SQL 2005, and the default logging method requires turing on OLE Embedding and XP_Cmdshell.

These 2 methods are against all hardening best practices.


How are people monitoring SQL 2005 databases?



Also we are getting a NULL value in the dbo_nic_aud_trace table for curr_trace_ID.  When this happens the logging stops.  Anyone know why this value is getting NULL?
