Subject Re: Performance decreasing if access.log enabled
Date Mon, 09 Oct 2006 12:27:02 GMT

Unfortunately I have to use Windows Server 2003 as the company behind the
application we're using is not supporting UNIX/Linux.

Windows also has performance utilities but they tell me that the server
isn't heavily loaded at all.

A good think would be to have a smaller access log just for statistics, like
only one line per user access and not every file which transferred to the
user (html, images, js and so on) ...
