Exchange 2016 Log File Size

Frequent Contributor

Are there any settings to control the amount of file logging (diagnostic logging) that Exchange 2016 generates i.e. the number of files and the size of each? My goal would be to try and keep the overall size of the logs folder to a certain maximum size.

Depends in your times if you need deeper investigation you may have to increase the debug level. Unless you are diagnosing some problem or issue diagnostic log space can be minimum. Why waste your disk space. Reach me at
I'd also be interested if anyone has a resolution for this.
Currently run a script on a weekly basis that removes log files over 7 days old to reduce the size down.
