Limiting amount of logs received daily
I configured my conf file (comm. edition) with a query for certain event id's. The output works, however, is there a way to prevent every event from creating it's own log file? For instance, create 1 large file for the date vs having 200k+ logfiles daily.
I'm not sure if I understand you correctly - what do you mean by " every event from creating its own log file"? Did you mean limit/filtering events to be stored?
If the filesize is your issue, you may want to check the filecycle directive.
In case I misunderstood you - please, provide your conf file & bring us more details on your case.
