inetpub logs are massive and taking up huge amounts of space

I have a 2008 SBS server that is running Exchange.  I noticed today that it wasn't passing mail and taking a look, it was eventually due to the C: drive having less free disk space than the Back Pressure threshold.  I took a look at the areas that had huge amounts of data and found that

c:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles\W3SVC1472222313\

had a TON of data.  I go take a look and there have recently been daily logs over 115 MB.  I have no idea why this is and need to get it figured out.  The logs are almost total repeats of

2010-04-14 00:00:00 fe80::c5e0:b542:1e18:263d%11 POST /ApiRemoting30/WebService.asmx - 8530 DOMAIN\SERVERNAME$ fe80::c5e0:b542:1e18:263d%11 Mozilla/4.0+(compatible;+MSIE+6.0;+MS+Web+Services+Client+Protocol+2.0.50727.4200) 200 0 0 17

about 40ish times per second for the entire day.  

Anyone able to point me in the right direction here?

To disable logging, go into the IIS Manager -> Right-click on Websites and select Properties-> Uncheck “Enable Logging”

I've already disabled logging, but my question is more of what/why is it logging and why so much rather than just how to turn it off.

Hi,

/ApiRemoting30/WebService.asmx is tied to Software Update Services or (SUS/WSUS). A WSUS full install, configures a separate site w/ ports 8530/8531.

Since this is a separate site, as mentioned above the best approach is to disable logging for this website and take a look at your WSUS configuration to ensure it can connect properly.

What you could do as well is use browse to the log folder (c:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles\W3SVC1472222313\ ) and enable NTFS compression.
