Starting with version, the maximum size of the debug log file located in %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\eventsentry\logs can be adjusted with the "debuglevel_max_size" registry value. This DWORD value specifies the maximum size of each debug log file in megabytes, consequently the total disk space used will be twice the size of the registry value.

The default size for each debug log file is 30Mb. To adjust the maximum size of the debug log file, do the following:

  1. Open regedit.exe on the host where the size needs to be adjusted, or connect to the remote host with regedit.exe
  2. Navigate to "HKLM\Software\\EventSentry" (or "HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\\EventSentry" on 64-bit systems)
  3. Add a new DWORD registry value called "debuglevel_max_size" with the desired size in megabytes.
  4. Restart the EventSentry agent for the change to become effective.

For example, if "debuglevel_max_size" is set to 100, the debug log file(s) will consume a maximum disk space of 200Mb.
