Previously the Windows Agent may generate too much data during Windows EventLog (logwatch) section generation. In fact, size of the data to be send was unlimited, the Agent could have created a block of data several gigabytes in size.

Now default maximal size of the whole logwatch section of the Windows Agent is limited to 500000 bytes. The value of this limit may be changed in check_mk.user.yml using variable logwatch.max_size. To have unlimited section, the value of the max_size should be set in -1
