    How much Disk space is needed for Logs on a server?

    Our friend/Server provider says we can't enable Teamspeak logging cause it "takes up waaaaay too much space and takes a toll on the drives".

    Just wondering if he's right, or if we can do some logging, or maybe he's wrong?

    The size really depends on what you are logging and how many people use the server. If you log everything (such as client connections etc.) the files will get a "lot" bigger, but they do not usually reach a size anywhere near the size of the database for example.
    Just to give you an idea - I've got a log file with 21160 entries. Its size is 2.891 KiB.

    So are you saying we could do client connection logging and we shouldn't be running into too much trouble with it making problems to anything on the box, etc? We usuaully have between 10-25 on. Also, would it cost the provider more money to turn on logs?
