Alert Name:   ULS trace log reaching maximum size

Event ID:   8094

Summary:   The SharePoint 2010 Tracing Service (SPTracev4) is used by Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 to manage trace message output. When trace logging is enabled, administrators can specify the path used to store the trace log file. This log file is used by many applications that are built on SharePoint Foundation 2010. This event occurs when the configured log file location is low on space. It serves as a warning that logging may stop soon unless more space is made available or the space allocated to logging is increased.

Symptoms:   This event appears in the event log: Event ID: 8094 Description: Trace logs are reaching to the configured storage limit [configured limit]. Please increase the maximum storage settings. Otherwise, older files will be deleted once the limit is reached.

Cause:   The configured log file location has insufficient free disk space for logging, or the maximum space allocated for logging is too low.

Resolution:   Increase the space limit for log files
