How is logging typically handled on Windows?

It is done using the eventlog service (which is supported as replacement for syslog now) or in case of MSSQL as file logging.

MSSQL in more detail:
In eventlog only the most important MSSQL messages will appear (start/stop, PANIC), while the rest is done in logfiles (retrievable over client tools, rotatable using sp_cycle_errorlog) and may grow much larger than eventlog (which will receive messages from all apps/services).

This handling is so throughout M$ apps, like webserver etc: fatals to eventlog, the rest to files.
