  • Yes every Server write the different event. Like in a environment if you a Index server, 2 WFE, App server, if you having search realted issue, you will see some specific event on Index server, the WFE having the largest log files as compare to Index server & App server becuase its captures all events related to user, profile import, site collection issue..etc.


    So yes its different on all servers, and when you troubleshooting your issue you should check it on all servers.
