SearchLog has no new entries after 2/15/17


Database table for the SearchLog has no new entries after 2/15/17.

There have been no changes to the site except for adding some products last December and adding images for those products. Database has been adding user search terms just fine right up until mid Feb.  Table contains 150K entries going back to 2010 when the site went live.  I manually cleared entries older than 2016 just in case it was related to available space or quantity of entries and it still does not log new searches. 

Any ideas or info on the process that creates the log entries would be greatly appreciated.

Basic search is unmodified, advanced search does have added search fields to account for vehicle VIN numbers.

URL is morganolsonparts.com

Site requires registration but if you click on "create account" then click on the top left logo image, it will let you in with an account. (not supposed to do that but it does anyway)

Thank you,

There really isn't much logic around that in the old version you're on.  Search.aspx & searchadv.aspx both write directly to the DB for any request that hits them with a ?searchterm querystring.  Your best bet is going to be to look into what changed around the time the log entries stopped.  Talk to the host or whoever maintains the server, check Windows Update logs, etc.  You might try checking Event Viewer for errors too, if you've got access.
