Event log - Kernal Event Tracing log issue - should I worry?

Event log - Kernal Event Tracing log issue - should I worry?

(OP)
I seem to be getting quite a few of these warnings in my Event log lately. Should I be bothered? If so, what do I need to do to prevent the problem?

Quote:

The backing-file for the real-time session "WDC.BE95A9B1-DE15-4B78-B923-A12AB70BE951" has reached its maximum size. As a result, new events will not be logged to this session until space becomes available. This error is often caused by starting a trace session in real-time mode without having any real-time consumers.

RE: Event log - Kernal Event Tracing log issue - should I worry?

(OP)
Thanks for that. However I can't see how you increase the log file size or even where you go to change it. I'm feeling a right dumbo now but I think I need step by step instructions.

RE: Event log - Kernal Event Tracing log issue - should I worry?

Run eventvwr.msc, do a right-click over the log (For example, System or Application etc) and select Properties. Size and other options are there.

Many thanks - done - wasn't easy to find the relevant log though - Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-EventTracing/Admin

At least I hope that's the one.
