Here's a comparison with MySQL 4.1 with info on SQL Server:

Maximum Database size for Enterprise, Standard, Workgroup, and developer editions:
1,048,516 terabytes

(Scalability under "Product SKU Matrix")
There's the standard SQL logs, most easily found in Enterprise manager.

Then you can also run a trace in SQL Profiler that will give you more event information than you could analyze in three lifetimes.

Fire up SQL Profiler and have a look

The several logs you need to consider when using SQL Server:

1) SQL Server Logs: you can find them under Enterprise Manager-->Management-->Error Logs  
2) System and Application logs: you can find them under Control Panel-->Administrative tools-->Event Viewer
3) Cluster Logs if your server is in a cluster

Maximum database size depends on what version of SQL Server you got.  Data Center edition has a 32TB capacity.

Hope this helped...
