audit log trimming impact on farm

The Audit Log Trimming is set to run monthly basis. I need to switch it to weekly. But before that I need to know what's the impact of the same to the SharePoint 2016 farm?

Likely you'll lessen the impact to the farm by reducing the amount of data SharePoint needs to purge from the content database(s) at any one single run of the timer job. However, the first time you run it there may be increased impact. Since the process occurs within your content database(s), I would suggest planning the first run after making the schedule change during after hours.

The impact is to clean up the audit log every week, no other impacts.

You could follow trevor’s suggestion to set Audit Log Trimming timer job.

@EmilyDu-MSFT Each web application has its own Audit Log Trimming timer job. Do i need to clean up audit logs for every week at site collection level?

You don't need to clean up audit logs for every week at site collection level.
