    Maximum file size for session "Circular Kernel Context Logger" reached

    Hello, I have a new computer, loving it, games are running well, my audio programs are running well. I was just looking around in event viewer (silly I know) and I saw a warning and an error for this: "The maximum file size for session "Circular Kernel Context Logger" has been reached. As a result, events might be lost (not logged) to file "C:\WINDOWS\system32\WDI\LogFiles\ShutdownCKCL.etl". The maximum files size is currently set to 20971520 bytes. "

    Now as I said I have things running awesome now for everything I use my computer for, I was just curious to see a warning and error in Event Viewer for this.

    Should I just ignore this as it doesn't seem to be bothering anything on the computer? or effecting what I am doing? I have zero critical errors right now in event viewer, was just curious if I should ignore this or if there is a fix for it. I usually just ignore event viewer unless its critical event, but thought I would ask. It looks like it happens once a day in the event viewer. Thanks for any information, I don't notice anything happening or is bothering anything on the computer at those times, but wanted to make sure, cheers!

    Start - Run - perfmon - open "Circular Kernel Context Logger" - increase max size or un-check it for unlimited.

    Thanks! It was unchecked though and said zero, so I increased it? Not a big deal is it?
