I turn on logging for my wcf services and clients with some configuration like this:
<configuration> <system.diagnostics> <sources> <source name="System.ServiceModel" switchValue="Information, ActivityTracing" propagateActivity="true"> <listeners> <add name="traceListener" type="System.Diagnostics.XmlWriterTraceListener" initializeData= "c:\log\Traces.svclog" /> </listeners> </source> </sources> </system.diagnostics> <configuration>
That works fine, but the log file just keeps growing -- every time I restart the
log gets appended to instead of overwritten.
How can set this such that the log files are overwritten everytime the client or service

The trace logs are not useful for production logging in my opinion. I prefer to use a custom logging service that traces exceptions, for example.

You may use the Circular Tracing listener that is part of the SDK Management samples. This will create two files for you that will be overwritten in turn.
To use the trace listener, simplymodify the config files as showin in the sample.
