Log Files

  Asked By: Lukas    Date: Apr 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1069

Is there a way in the log files to eliminate the crawl account from
logging everything its doing. It causing my log files to be about
500mb per day when we only have 450 users in the company and only a
handful of users that access the sharepoint site.

I'm trying to give as many details as possible, but not sure if I'm
asking the right question

Look at Site Settings > Configure Search and Indexing > Manage Content
Manage Index Properties

Uncheck the appropriate boxes.

I looked at that and both boxes in the logging section where

Its not the gatherlog that I'm trying to remove things from, its from
the log  file assoicated with IIS.

Does this do it:

-Open the properties of the Web Site in IIS.
-On the Web Site tab (default), uncheck Enable logging checkbox.

If I turn the logging in IIS won't that stop all loggging of the
sharepoint site? I'm just trying to keep one account  out of the
logs. I don't even know if its possible or I need to do some
scripting to remove those lines from the log.

Your best bet is to remove those lines from the log. There is a log  Parser utility.

I agree. With the web server logs, one can turn logging on or off and control
the contents of the log  but the settings apply to every access to the web
server. No filtering during logging.

W2K3 SP1 extends the logging capability of IIS so that centralized logging for
all web sites is available but still does not filter on user ID.

I would suggest that the default location of the log files  is not optimum and
should be changed to a disk other than the OS. Scripts that move the log off the
server are less overhead than logging to a UNC. Be aware, however, that the log
file is not closed until the first hit on the web site after the time set for a
new log to start.

Also, if you want some logging, you can still reduce the size of the logs by
modifying the w3c log  contents in the same area.
