  1. Launch Event Viewer on the device where the issue appears.
  2. Go to Applications and Services LogsKaspersky Event Log.

Opening Kaspersky Event Log in Event Viewer

  1. Click Filter Current Log. Select the Critical, Warning and Error check boxes, and click OK.

Setting filters in Kaspersky Event Log

The error messages that appear after filtering will indicate the following type of issue: “Total number of events stored in database (418184) has exceeded the actual limit of 400000 event(s). Starting to delete excessive events from the database...“.

  1. To avoid the error, try one of the following options:
    • Reduce the storage term of events or disable logging of unnecessary events, e.g. informational ones. Apply and check event settings one by one. You may also apply both settings in all Kaspersky applied policies, tasks and Administration Server settings.
    • Increase the maximum number of events stored in the Administration Server database.
