Routinely Check SSRS Log Files

This week I learned that SSRS can run without writing to the SSRS log file.  I am referring to the text file in the  …<InstanceName>\Reporting Services\LogFiles directory.  In this case SSRS had stopped writing log files for over a month.  For some reason the SSRS service account had lost permissions to write to that directory.  Adding the permission back and restarting the service resolved the issue.  In the future I will be checking those logs routinely to make sure that SSRS is writing to the log.
