This is the scenario:
We host several websites on multiple webservers, and I'm thinking about a way to consolidate the log-handling for all webservers.
Would it make sense to store all logs on a common NAS-device, with a dedicated machine that does logrotation, compression as well as summaries? My initial thought was to use a SAN with iSCSI, however you cannot attach a single partition to multiple clients then.
My goal was to eliminate the need for maintenance-task on the production servers, for easier deployment of new servers etc.
Follow-up question, how do IIS respond when it cannot write to the access-log? Will it fail miserably or just stop logging?
