SQL Server Error Log Manager

By skrilla99,

Provides a method to regularly recycle the sql server error logs based on a given file size.  If the current log file is larger than that size, then the current log is closed and a new log created.

This proc takes one parameter, @MaxFileSize, which is the target file size.  This parameter defaults to 10 MB.

Simply execute this proc from a scheduled job to keep those log files managable.
