Getting Data In

IIS logs: why the error WARN FilesystemChangeWatcher - error getting attributes of path "E:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles":?


We have a rather huge solution with 2000+ servere.   

Our company needs that we monitor the IIS logs.

Problem is that not all server has IIS and some have logs on  C: drive and other on E: drive.

We did then setup to monitor "E:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles" and "C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles" on all severs.  It would be impossible to select just the servers with IIS running.   The result of this is that we do get lots of warning in our logs. Some server have logs in E and some in C and som do not have IIS logs, so logs are filled with this messages:


11-19-2022 16:22:04.199 +0100 WARN  FilesystemChangeWatcher - error getting attributes of path "E:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles": The device is not ready.


1. Does this give any problem? 

2. This clogs up the logs, so its harder to find real problem, so if this logs are not giving any problem, can it be turned of for some monitored files?
