I found a post from August 2014 but did not see any replies from Ultimate Windows Security. I wanted to revive this and ask again. We are exploring the possibility of increasing our log size, too.
Using this article as a reference, https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/957662#/en-us/kb/957662, it appears 4 GB is the maximum which is also what was suggested we configure ours. Of course, we are looking to increase to at most 1 GB, citing the previous post and the 300 MB limit from the Security Log Resource Kit. It appears there are distinctions now regarding 32-bit versions vs. 64-bit versions. We are running 2008 R2 or newer, so all 64-bit.

Best practice is to forward your logs to a Log Management solution for long term storage. 1 GB would be fine but it can be difficult to view logs in Event Viewer when there are this man.
