I have a problem of a Sharepoint Server that regularly stops logging, instead the logfiles (in 12\LOGS) only contain

05/05/2009 14:17:09.12 wsstracing.exe (0x0B24) 0x0254 ULS Logging Unified Logging Service uls1 Monitorable Tracing Service lost trace events. Current value 11.

(Current value fluctuates a lot)

Any ideas how that can be troubleshooted? Restarting the service or server fixes, but only for a few days, and I don't know what could be the cause of this?

We have the same problem. The tracing service also would't stop sometimes, so a reboot is needed. – axk May 7 '09 at 20:29

There is a bug open for this issue:

No fix available yet I'm afraid other than restarting the services.

hmm, after I enter my Windows Live ID - it works fine here... – Thomas Vochten May 8 '09 at 7:12

It's usually due to low memory conditions on the server. However it can sometimes just happen...

The logging stops completely when you have less than 200MB of free space on C: regardless of where you've set up the log to be written. But it writes a notification to the application events about that. – axk May 16 '09 at 11:18
