SCCM 1702 Clientservicing log file details

Here is an explanation to what is clientservicing.log file in SCCM 1702. Microsoft recently came up with a new client servicing endpoint for facilitating client auto-upgrade or piloting. Currently this file helps deliver the client deployment state messages only. If the client agent is upgraded successfully (ccmsetup for the success case), at the end it will just write the state message to WMI. This endpoint will pick up to try delivering to MP and fall back to FSP only when the client wasn’t able to assign/register. This can help to improve the reliability and latency of the deployment state messages. The log file is for this component.

The clientservicing log file is located under \Windows\CCM\Logs folder path.

    So, why are people reporting large file sizes for a log that only contains client deployment state messages? And what should be done if the file gets huge?
