Generating 20GB worth of log files

Postby lotsahelp » Thu Sep 13, 2012 2:56 pm

Starting yesterday, 9/12, Source Control has generated over 20GB worth of log files, each file being 50MB in size. Using version 3.0.13.4214. Any idea what would cause this?

We've had some problems with excessive logging in the past, but we thought we'd fixed them. The only thing we're aware of right now that might cause SQL Source Control to spit out loads of logs is if something's messing with the RedGate_SQLSourceControl_Engine_EngineOptions.xml in %LOCALAPPDATA%\\Red Gate\\SQL Source Control 3 - is it possible that you've got backup or antivirus software limiting access to that file? If SQL Source Control can't access it, it'll create a new one from scratch and log a lot of information.

I can send the logs in as I should be within a support contract.

Sure - if you could send a sample to support@red-gate.com and quote the ticket reference F0064586 I'll have a look over them and see what I can glean.
