Method to roll off application/systems log off of server to a different volume
Looking for automated means in Windows Server 2008 on a non-domain server to roll off the application/system logs after meeting a specific quota. I was looking into maybe using robo copy. Any suggestions?
It uses a schedule for the backups and is not based on logfile size.
I would prefer this option to ensure that you keep the files with a defined criteria and date range for easier access and troubleshooting.
The issue is that is your logs are full and there is no space then you'd have problems with the server.
The other issue is that the bigger the log files the longer it will take you to work through them when you have to find something from the archived data.
