How many megabytes of (server side) log files are created daily?

Just curious? I think its astronomical amount of data or is it?

Considering all the logs show nothing, I would say it's about 1 byte in size. Just enough to make it even considered a file.

Doesn't need to be 1 byte

Just needs pointer to it's location to be a file.

I thought Windows was the only program that was ******ed enough to create thousand of 0 byte files ugh

Nope. And what do you think the EvE servers are running?

I'd guesstimate quite a few gigabytes per day for all server-side logging.
Where "few" could be anywhere between 5 and 100.

Things we KNOW almost certainly that they're logged fully:
* each and every market transaction, direct trades and contracts
* each and every evemail sent
* each and every standings change
* each and every login/logoff and some data of location/machine logging in from

Things we know almost certainly are logged to some degree:
* each and every move of items from any hangar or container anywhere in another hangar or container, jetcan creation and jetcan item transfers
* each and every item reprocessing or trashing
* each and every shot fired, or most likely, each and every module activation regardless of what the module is
* each and every manufacture, research, invention or reverse engineering job
* each and every spatial structure anchoring, unanchoring, onlining and offlining
* each and every player ship destruction data
* each and every notepad, note or bio edit

Things that MIGHT also be logged to some unknown degree:
* fleet join/leave and fleet position changes
* NPC destruction data
* movement-related command you give to your ship
* conversations you might have
* time/date you read each evemail
* active/idle period


... AND QUITE A FEW OTHER THINGS.


P.S. Also, guesstimated data traffic between server cluster and all clients combined is somewhere in the vicinity of 4 to 40 TERABYTES of data on a daily basis.

If the question is actually "how much space does CCP waste on logs" then the answer is "well, archiving a 1gb file to 1mb is not impossible :)".

way to low guess^^ should be like 40-400tb

I heard that it's about 54x10^14563 Terabytes per day.
