Hi!

I'm on twitter. And I have a blog, as linked to elsewhere on this page.

comment Exchange Web Services causes transaction logs growth
Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I've run into the same thing, and I'm pretty much stuck trying to troubleshoot it.

I just answered the former, I'm not denying that it would be useful

comment Why hasn't rsync caught on in the Windows world?
@John: yes, but people aren't going to use rsync unless they know it exists. rsync has been used, and useful, to "typical" *nix users for ages, and so any *nix sysadmin worth his salt knows about it. On Windows? Not so much. Windows is (and probably more importantly, was aimed at a different audience, one which had no interest in, or use for, tools like it. And since Windows sysadmins usually start out as Windows users, the tools they use are influenced by which tools Windows users use. You're mixing two different concerns (why isn't it popular, vs would it be useful)

comment Does Overclocking Anything Shorten It's Life?
@Holger: true, and I thought about including that in my answer, but in the end I decided it would complicate matters for little reason. My main point was that chips don't have an "inherent" speed. Instead they are configured by Intel based on what the chip is capable of in their testing, and on their business needs.

comment Does Exchange generate transaction logs even for read-only operations?
Do you also know exactly how many items are "touched" by these operations? For example, if I use FindItem to search for items where a certain extended property has a specific value, does it update just the items returned by the operation, all those where the property exists, or an even larger number of items? I'm trying to figure out which operations are causing these huge amounts of transaction logs.

Well, that makes sense. Thanks for the explanation.

The problem is Exchange's own transaction logs, not diagnostics. As far as I know (and there's a lot I don't know about Exchange), there's no verbosity level for the former, as the logs are used internally by Exchange.
