How do i stop logging unwanted messages in SQL error logs […] likewise is there any other trace flags […]

No, there are no trace flags to turn this logging off.

If you'd like to give some feedback on making a trace flag or have this disabled by default, put in a suggestion on User Voice with this specific example :)

  • Can't we do this updating msdb.dbo.sp_altermessage proc, Ex: I updated EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_altermessage 17550,'WITH_LOG','false'; the is_event_logged column set to 0 which means it shouldn't log, I restarted SQL service, I ran DBCC , still i can see the the message is logging – Sunny Jul 27 '18 at 17:02
  • @Sunny 1) You answered your own question in the comment. 2) You're assuming that nothing else writes directly to the errorlog, which other items do and you can't use that SP to just add and remove messages you want, which again you've found out through your own testing :) – Sean Gallardy Jul 27 '18 at 18:00
