  • There must be a language barrier, because there seems to be a disjointed stream of thoughts about a service (I am guessing?) that make no sense.

    Sorry but you'll need to get someone to translate for you.

  • Use event viewer to turn off trace for any log set to trace.

    Read event viewer documentation to learn how to manage event log trace.

    ETW providers can raise events and can publish them to the Windows Event Log or can write their events to an ETW session, which gets written to a trace file or delivered to real-time consumer.

  • i don't undertsand, please do you have a script explaining : how to shutdown etl ?

    or change directory

    etl goes on my hard drive ,

    windows reverse my batch job on other ramdisk and continue to produce etl in the same directory

  • We have no idea what you are asking. What ETL are you trying to manage.  Most ETL logs are not manageable by users and are created and managed by the system.

    Carefully read the following link:

  • there are several etl., the most redondant is NetCore.etl

    he write always on my hard drive... it's perhaps a quality developement but not on my hard drive like this.

    netcore isn't a kernel log ?

    i use tracelog on cmd for move directory and windows undo my job, it's a trouble.

    please test on this small example (perhaps you know...) : move directory log of netcore.etl, what's your issue

    or key ?

  • Net.Core is not a current Windows module but is part of PS 6-7. Post in the Net Core project on GitHub to find out if what you ask is possible. It is not a scripting issue.  The configuration for Net.Core ETL is likely in an XML file in one of the folders for Net.Core.

  • i've seen this somewhere : but i remember : where's this xml file ? not on the directory,


    he doesn't exist ! do you have a path of the folders for Net.Core ?

    it's possible to create the xml file but the etl works without xml...

    is it necessary to create the xml file and after he manage the etl concerned ? 

    i test this and i return in a next time.

  • there are a new way in performance analyzer :

    there are event tracking session and startup event trace session

    perhaps a bug but after several manipulation, now i can change and he stay :

    i change the directory on the same disk for session startup and it's ok before he reject this by unauthorized


    i continue to see.

    but what's the permission security to using for change directory access permission ?

    Allows the user to start or update a session that writes events to a log file. Set this permission on the session's GUID.

    i use method supplied by microsoft but you can stop by changing permission to all, i test in a next time.
