Configuration Settings for the Report Server Execution Log

You can turn report execution logging on or off by selecting options in Report Manager on the Site Settings page or on the Server Properties page in Management Studio.

By default, log entries are kept 60 days. Entries that exceed this date are removed at 2:00 A.M. every day. On a mature installation, only 60 days of information will be available at any given time.

The report execution log is stored in the report server database. You cannot set limits on the number of rows or on the type of entries that are logged. However, you can create reports that retrieve the log information you want to track.

Humpdy, there are 2 log folders
1)C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\Reporting Services\ExecutionLog (this is the msdn link is referring, right?)
and
2)C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Reporting Services\LogFiles (this is the screen shot i had posted)

>>The report execution log is stored in the report server database.
