How do I change dotDefender event log size limit ?
Posted by Alice Lankri on 11 October 2011 06:36 PM

The dotDefender Log Service (aclogsvc), checks the database (aclogsvc.ddb) every 500 events (Registry key: LogTruncateCheckFrequency).

If the number of events reaches 15,000 (Registry key: LogTruncateMaxCount) it deletes 10% of the items in the database (Registry key: LogTruncateCountDivider), while using the First In First Out method (deleting old events first).

Each event (Record) logged in the database is limited to approximately 64 KB.

Potentially the size of the database can reach approximately 1 GB, when using the default values: 64 KB * 15,000 = ~ 1 GB.

The parameters are configurable in the registry:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Applicure\dotDefender\aclogsvc]

"LogTruncateCheckFrequency"=500

"LogTruncateMaxCount"=15000

"LogTruncateCountDivider"=10

Make these changes in the registry and then restart dotDefender Log Service for the settings to take effect.
