When browsing the Security Log of the Windows Event log, there are a lot of entries referencing the domain service account used by SQL Monitor. To be more objective - it's not unusual to see ten to twelve entries for a single second.

Is this normal? Is there anything that can be done to reduce it? It's introducing a lot of noise to the signal when I'm browsing the security logs.

Thank you for your post.

What kind of entries are being logged? Are they login failures?

Login successes - hence the frequency of them.

The frequency of the login will be related to the data collection schedule. The only way to reduce this, and by association the number of these messages being logged is to change the polling schedule. Otherwise, you should be able to filter the messages when viewing the event log. But unfortunately there is no way (as far as I am aware) to prevent the messages being logged in the first place.
