Massive sudden log file growth

  Asked By: Reuben    Date: Mar 02    Category: MOSS    Views: 2093

We have an SBS server running with sharepoint. We are seeing sudden loss of disk
space over a very short period of time. In both occasions we found 50GB+ in two
log files in this location;

c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\LOGS

The other files contain lines such as;

07/22/2010 09:51:00.28 OWSTIMER.EXE (0x0E78) 0x0E84
Windows SharePoint Services Timer 5utp
Verbose Scheduled timer job Config Refresh, id
{5BB7E09D-1A99-4869-BB92-AF31B797ABE9} at 22 Jul 2010 09:51:15 +0100 (now is 22
Jul 2010 09:51:00 +0100)
07/22/2010 09:51:00.28 OWSTIMER.EXE (0x0E78) 0x0F10
Windows SharePoint Services Topology 88b9
Verbose Determining if the current user is a SharePoint Farm
Administrator
07/22/2010 09:51:00.30 OWSTIMER.EXE (0x0E78) 0x0F10
Windows SharePoint Services Timer 8e45
Verbose Begin invoke timer job Config Refresh, id
{5BB7E09D-1A99-4869-BB92-AF31B797ABE9}, DB n/a

I'm assuming the massive logs contain the same info, but as we can't open them
we can't be sure.

Any ideas why sharepoint would suddenly (in the space of about 2 hours) create a
massive amount of log entries?

I believe this is the process I followed when this happened to me a while

I sounds like someone may have switched the logging to verbose....?

It appears the log level for the farm is set to Verbose - you can change
this in Central Administration to something a little easier on disk
space at any time.
