Event logging modes
This section is only available to users with System Administrator permissions.
The System Administrator can choose the types of events that will be recorded in the event log. To do this, open the Administration and Monitoring Console, click Settings → Event logging mode and select one of the following options from the drop-down list:
- All events
This is the default setting and will work well in most cases. However, if you would like to save space or improve performance and don't need information about all the events, choose another setting that logs less information.
- Do not log report data
- Do not log anything
- Custom logging mode
If you want to record only specific events, select this option and then select the desired events from the list. Note that this option is for advanced users: make sure that you know what you're doing, so that the changed settings don't break the reports and statistics gathered for your configuration.
Important! Changes to event logging settings will only be applied after you restart Internet Information Services (IIS).
