IIS Log Rollover

jking1234 used Ask the Experts™
I am using IIS V6.0 on Windows Server 2003. I want to process the IIS Logs in as near real time as possible. I have set it to rollover at 1Mb (On our system this takes about 5 minutes)

Is there a way that I can set the rollover to less than 1Mb (or less than 1 hour).

Better still, is there a way that I can read the live log?

Thanks in anticipation
