Very large log files (250mb) in IIS over a period of a few days - Why?
Posted on 2008-11-16
I was looking to clear out space in the C drive of the exchange server and noticed quite a large amount of space taken up by the IIS log files at:
On first glance all the files typically looked very small and typically under 1mb. Then I noticed around begining of July 2008 a series of log files that rose up to 290mb in size. This was over a period of about 7 days.
AFter that period thing went pretty much back to normal although overall always a bit bigger after that date (but still under 1mb).
What even could have triggered such an event? Should I be worried?
I've not actually managed to open the files yet because of their size, but even if I did open them I would probably not understand them.
