How can I increase logging for profile-related events? The idea would be to run an automatic script based on certain events such as 'profile size exceeded'.

I'm not aware of a tool that does this explicitly; however, you may be able to configure specific policies, such as User Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\System\User Profiles\Limit Profile Size, and then write a script or even a scheduled task to alert you when this policy is invoked and/or processed.

Yes, exactly - that is the background to my question. I'm actually using profile size  limitations (group policy) and want to take action rather than just display warning messages. To write a scheduled task or alert, you would need a corresponding event in the event log. So to rephrase the question: How do I trigger an event in the event log when a policy is  invoked?

I did not receive a useful answer from other experts in reasonable time and will have to figure this out in more detail.
