Event log clogs up

By oisere ·
I have 22 Domain controllers all scattered around UK. They are all under one domain. My problem is that the event log keeps filling up. I have tried everything to stop the event audit replicating between the sites. It has got to a point where I have to clear the logs daily. PLEASE can somebody tell me what to do

Set you event log files to overwrite as needed and make sure they are big enough. Right click on each area (system, application, etc...), click on properties and change the file size to something like 5120 (thats only 5mb) and click on the overwrite as needed radio dot. Hope this helps.

Than you for your help, the size was already over 200mb. Yet filling up within 1 day.

I would follow the previous commenter's advice with on change. Set the security log file size to 50 megabytes, but do not set overwrite as needed. If there is a security-related event, you will need this log file to investigate, document and resolve issues.

The security log is filling up over 200 MB in a day?

What failure, success events are you monitoring?

Exactly WHICH log is 250mb (there should be at least 3) and what is the size of the others?
