    I see no reason why you should have a file that size 5gig and growing.

    We have 20+ email accounts and 5 websites.
    Aspilog is only 2048kb

    Wish I new more......

    every time some browses a webpage from a domain on your server the file gets an entry because of the isapi.dll in the isapi config in your iis.

    it is very anoyng that the file is growing and growing without an end.

    you can delete the file by stopping your iis and then just delete the file and start your iis again it generates automatic a new file, so don't worry i did it several times.

    The problem is in the Jakarta (Tomcat) install itself.

    By default the ISAPI dll that comes with Tomcat is installed in a debug mode. This means it logs everything that IIS does.

    I did a very minimal amount of googling and found the fix for this.

    Before I begin, I'm going to tell you to edit your registry. You do this at your own risk. I won't be held accountable in any way if you're too inept to do a simple registry edit without backing your registry up first.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Apache Software Foundation\Jakarta Isapi Redirector\1.0 and find the string value key "log_level".

    Change this string value to "info" and close it. Changes will take effect the next time you start IIS and Tomcat.

    If you want to delete the file, follow the directions given in the preceding posts.

    I'm still rather annoyed that tomcat.exe is even running considering it hogs up 22MB (!!) of RAM and my license doesn't even cover it.

    Have a nice day
