I am sure some of the server administrators and providers might have realized, primarily on heavily loaded server, a rather large amount of log spam resulting in as large as 15GB log files. There is an error spammed in the log which is something we are aware of, however to keep this from eating disk quota's we would like to share something to reduce the log spam.

In the AA3Engine.ini file

Under [Core.System]

Add the following lines

Suppress=DevNet
Suppress=Log: WARNING

This is intended for servers only.

Note: The DevNet is not part of the error being spammed, just useless information so why not kill it as well ;)

Will it affect in anyway to the rest of the reports ?
Also how it will change the performance ?

It will filter out any logging that starts with the Suppress value. Most logging will be unaffected.

Unlikely to affect performance, only time would be during times of log spam and would be minimal if at all. However, leased servers will typically have disk quota setup to prevent servers filling up hard drives. I know gameservers.com has a quota. This log spam would fill the quota quickly preventing other logging and screen shots and could cause other issues as the server would have write errors to the log file.

I would recommend this setting to all server administrators and providers.

Thank you, yapple. We do, in fact, use Gameservers. We'll implement the recommended changes. Appreciate your assistance! :)
