The user interface provides the following levels of logging:
None- By default the logging level for all objects is set to none. At this level only errors and criticale events are logged. This should be the level set when everything is running correctly.
Minimum- Differs from None by adding informational and warning events to the data collected.
Medium- A higher level of logging then Minimum, it should be used if the information provided by Minimum is not enough.
Maximum- Specifies the highest logging level that can be configured using Exchange System Manager.
When configuring the logging level using Exchange System Manager the registry is changed.
Each component that is changed has a registry key and value that is changed based on the change madw by the Exchange System Manager:
0 is none.
1 is minimum.
3 is medium.
5 is maximum.
The highest level of diagnostic logging that can be set by using the Exchange System Manager is Maximum(5). In some cases the data provided by the "Maximum"(5) level is not enough,
a higher level of diagnostic logging which is called "Field Engineering"(7) can be employed. This is the highest level of logging and it will provide verly large amounts of information.
To set the logging level to "Field Engineering"(7) the registry has to be editted and the keys specified above must be set to 7 .
Warning- Diagnostic logging saves data to the Application log. The log should be carefully monitored since it can fill and/or cause performance degredation on the server monitored.
