Storing log files on a central based file server
One of the features of IISLogs is to store log files on a central file server, this feature is very powerful and requires a detailed knowledge how your network is designed and maintained. Once IISLogs determines a file needs to be compressed, it first compresses file locally before attempting to save the compressed file on a different directory path, partition or a remote network share. When dealing with large compressed files and putting on a remote file share, this can have unknown consequences on your network performance. We strongly recommend complete testing in a controlled environment before turning over to production.
Deleting files configuration setting options
This feature is a powerful and one of the core benefits to IISLogs, log files can quickly take up a lot of disk space if not managed properly. There are many things that should be taken into account before before turning on or enabling ANY of the DELETE functions in IISLogs. This is why the default settings on all configuration options are turned off by default and explicitly have to be configured to be turned on. You should research and verify all legal parameters on how long log files should be kept before purging. If you configure IISLogs to purge files and these files are NOT backed up to another system for later review. IISLogs isn't responsible for deleted files that are later determined needed for whatever reason. Reviewing your company and/or legal policy on log management should be a must. If your company doesn't have detailed log management solution, one should be created.
