In order to accommodate the tendency for clients to want to specify which disk log files are written to, it is desirable that the location of log files is made configurable. Presently it appears only the logDaysToKeep property can be set, and I have this at the default 5 value in a shared lab environment. Log files are presently being written to c:\Program Files\UNIFY Solutions\Event Broker\Services\Logs, and so as a mitigation strategy to avoid excessive disk usage I have set this up as a compressed folder.
The Event Broker 3.0 service/scheduler has been in place and running for 3 days now (in what amounts to a shared development environment between DEEWR developers and us the FIM implementors). In that short time we now have 15 Mb across 3 log files, todays presently showing 13,371 log file entries. By the time we stabilize at 5 days of logs, we will have between 25 and 30 Mb of logs in 5 files ... unless we want to increase the number of days ... and it's not beyond the realms of possibility that this could be upwards of 90 days.
All other solution log file locations are configurable, and this should be no different.
No real urgency - just a consideration for the next release, where I imagine the full gammit of logging options available to Identity Broker (including Windows Event logs) are probably going to be considered anyway.
P.S. No work should be billable to the client in this case - the issue is raised by myself and has not been brought to the attention of the client (but will no doubt come up when we do our first deployment).
