Increasing the security log with FSCT (File Server Capacity Tool) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to make an small system for Fault Reappearance. 
    I have been changing parameters in profile.cfg file of FSCT to meet the requirements below but it has never reached expectation.

    # Requiremens
      - 500MB/min log should be written to the security log(eventlog)
      - Set volume D to audit sucess and failure events in Fileserver.
      - Set quota for the directory of security log(%SystemRoot%\System32\Config) in Fileserver.

    # FSCT(v1.2) components 
      - 2 clients
      - ActiveDirectory (created 3500 domain users for fsct test)
      - FSCT controller 
      - File Server ( volume D: 200GB with audit of success and failure and Quota setting)
       (Windows Server 2012 R2 x 5 on AWS / Clients: c4.2xlargec, AD: t2.micro, Others: c4.xlarge)

    # profile.cfg
     - wordfileopen 500
     - wordeditandsave 500

    # result
     - security log 300MB/300sec
     - CPU utils (maximum) around 40%

    I'm not sure increasing some values in profile.cfg would be efficient.

    I'm also wondering security log would be bigger if I add more users in the domain.

    Best Regards,
