Application Log logging


I have been getting complaints from our techs here about the huge
amount of entries Patchlink is writing to the Application log.  The
problem is when they are trying to troubleshoot a problem on a PC, the
application log has filled up with the Zenworks Patch Management Agent
entries, pushing out the entries they need for troubleshooting.

Aside from increasing the size of the Event logs, is there a way to
"throttle" down the entries Patchlink is making? server agent

what level do you have the agent logging set to?

It is at Debug...which I am assuming is the problem :-)

So, if I lower it to Basic, how much will that decrease the number of
entries per 24 hours?

Thanks for your speedy reply!!

lowering to basic will take out a huge number - you'd need to reduce to 
none to get rid of most...

I lowered it to None, and it still writes 3 lines a minute to the Event
Viewer Application Log.  Or 180 an hour...or 4320 in 24 hours..or...

It is amazing that this annoyance has been in their hands since 2005
without a resolution.  I don't unserstand why they can't direct these
messages to the Patchlink Log in the EV instead of the Appl Log.

To log or not to log
Hello foremen, on a large database, trillions of SELECTs and DELETEs are going to be performed. After that, the database is going to be unloaded. The database uses a transaction log.

Logged In As: Not Logged In
I installed ZCF 10.0.1 on a Win 2K3 server and when I install the ZEN client on a workstation the ZENWORKS client login comes up and I cannot log into it. It shows me the realm name of my tree and Zenworks Zone and I have tried both to no avail. When I look at the details of the adaptive agent it says, "Logged In As: Not Logged In" Any ideas?

mssql2005 Raiseror with log
 Is this possible?Or isn't this the appropriate function to do that? If I use just Raiserror with log it logs a big fat error in the application log. But I would like it to be a warning.There a way to do that? I haven't tried this with mssql2005 but if I remember correctly, in previous versions, specifying a severity of 16 (or greater) creates an Error event, severity 15 creates a Warning event and a severity less than 15 creates an Informational event.  Thank you - it works perfectly :-)...

Logging in without logging in...
Help! I've been asked to integrate a dotnetnuke site with another corporate site to present the user with a seamless transition between the two. The user will login to the corporate site (behind a firewall) and at some point be passed over to the dotnetnuke site (hosted externally). Is there anyway to log the user (who came form the corporate site) into the dotnetnuke site without the user having to retype his / her username / password? I'd prefer not to pass the username / password in the url - something more secure would be preferred. If anyone has any ideas or has done it b...

Filter log not logging

Transaction Logs And Logging
I work in a shop that does not keep the Sybase transaction logs. We have been mandated to research archiving our logging. The Sybase documentation does not go into great detail about how to do this. Can anyone give me pointers on this, or point me in the way of decent documentation? I understand setting the 'dump transaction' command on the Last Chance thresholds. We have 65 active databases, and the nightmare I have is trying to deal with 65 logs being constantly dumped. Without overwriting each other before they can be copied to tape. Is there an easy way to rename the ...
