Exchange 2010 log files growing like crazy
Posted on 2011-03-18
We have a client who is running Exchange 2001 SP1 who is seeing a large amount of transactions logs being created every minute.
I took a sample of the logs today and this is what I am seeing so far.
At 1:12 there are 227 logs for just that minute
At 1:14pm there are 470 logs for just that minute.
Backup Exec 2010 R2 with the Exchange agent does run at night so the previous day’s log files are getting purged. The issue is with why are so many logs files being generated. There are over 125 gig of logs files in the Mailbox Database folder.
I have checked with other clients we have running Exchange 2010 and I am not seeing this issue with any of them.
The server is a 2008 R2 Member Server.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I haven’t seen this before, at least not on this scale of volume.
