Greetings all,

I noticed something odd the other day. Every 5 minutes or so the disk activity on my ISA server starts going crazy for a couple of minutes and then stops.

After doing a bit of checking, I found that it appears that files in the ISALogs directory are being updated for some reason, even files that are months old. The last modified date shows recent updates on some files that were created a year ago!

I seem to have several log files for FWS and WEB created each day, each no more than 3Mb in size. I can't find a way to configure it to allow a single larger log file or any other options like that. The only option seems to be for the total size of the logs directory.

Does anyone have any ideas why it is updating all the old log files all the time?

Thanks,
Scott.

Why not log to MSDE instead? MSDE supports log files upto 2 gig and ISA will automagically roll them over and manage disk space.
