app_tracelog.svclog file is huge


With some older installations of GeoCue Federator the app_tracelog.svclog log file can become quite huge taking up a lot of room on the hard drive.

Probable Resolution:

You may delete the app_tracelog.svclog found in “C:\Program Files\GeoCue\GeoCue Federator Server”.

In order to prevent a large file from being created again, you can edit the “GCFederator.WindowsServiceHost.exe.config” file (should be present in the same folder – C:\Program Files\GeoCue\GeoCue Federator Server). The following edits can be made to the config file:


The roughly 5th line in the “GCFederator.WindowsServiceHost.exe.config” file reads:

<source name=”System.ServiceModel” switchValue=”Off, ActivityTracing” propagateActivity=”true”>

Remove ‘, ActivityTracing ‘ and change true to false
