It CAN be done but is a crap approach - part of the whole purpose of the firewall is to be able to identify trends, usage etc.

thanks for the input.  I know why logging is important, however we are replacing this box and don't care. i was looking for other input prior to doing it, to avoid the server totaly not working.  thanks again.

lol - if you don't care then obviously it is a fair approach.

Yes, it is OK to not log using the approach above. From ISA's perspective there is a difference between electing to not log and being unable to log (out of disk space on the logging drive etc).

The inability to log will stop all firewall services - blocking all throughput - until the condition is corrected whereas choosing that state is fine

You were correct, stopped all logging and caching, restarted server , all is ok.  We needed this box to stay alive while we transition to a new method and needed best performance possible. Thanks for your input and time.
