Recycle SQL Server Agent Error Logs
Topic Status: Some information in this topic is preview and subject to change in future releases. Preview information describes new features or changes to existing features in Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Community Technology Preview 2 (CTP2).
Use this page to recycle the Microsoft SQL Server Agent Error Logs. Recycling the log closes the current SQL Server Agent error log and starts a new error log without restarting the SQL Server Agent service. Notice that SQL Server Agent maintains the nine most recent error logs. If there are already nine error logs present, recycling the error log causes SQL Server Agent to remove the oldest error log.
