This is more of a learning question then a problem per say (hopefully that's okay to ask here!).
So, standard logging in Exchange. My understanding is as follows:
Changes to the database, incoming mail, sent items, etc. are written to log files stored in Program Files....\Logs.
When a backup is run, these logs get flushed, which is great - but when are those changes committed to the .edb (the database) itself? Is it done at a set time, or randomly when Exchange isn't 'busy'?
Furthermore - that means if backups aren't run on an Exchange server, lets just say this is the case, logs won't ever be flushed. So how could you get rid of them?
Would dismounting and remounting the database commit the logs to the EDB and flush the logs for example? Or rebooting the Exchange server?
