We have several events in The Tridion event log and want to see if we can disable some of these from showing up in the event log.

You can turn off verbose logging from templates by following the steps in this article

  1. On your publisher server, open /bin/TcmPublisher.exe.config
  2. Find the loggingConfiguration/specialSources/allEvents element and change the switchValue from Information to Warning or Error
  3. Save the file and restart the publisher service

These events are recorded by the Tridion code calling the Windows logging APIs. Once that's happened, you can't prevent the log entry being created. The only way you could have filtering would be if Tridion had made the logging of certain events configurable. I am not aware of any such configuration possibilities.

Having said that, all is not lost, as Windows has good support for being able to filter the output from the logs once it's written. Have a look in the Event viewer for "Create custom view". You should be able to create a view filtered on your own choice of event log and source, category etc.
