Event ID 316 — Unicast Logging

Updated: November 17, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

You can configure Logging plug-ins in Windows Media Services to keep a record, a log file, of client and server activity during a streaming session. Log information can also help:

  • Track server usage so that you can decide when you might need to add more resources to your system.
  • Assist you in planning your security implementation. For example, if your system is subjected to a denial-of-service attack, log files can help you determine which clients are being used in the attack.
  • Identify user-reported issues with your streaming system by providing event codes that correspond to common issues.
  • Provide historical data for use in trend analysis and business cases.
