Disable Log Session Info in log.nsf

After getting this question twice within two days it looks like this is not commonly known.
The only reference I found in public how to disable this session information is in the Domino Wiki with a reference to DCT (link).

Session detail Information (sessions, databases accessed) can be a privacy issue and also a performance issue because there is one document per session and user in log.nsf.
The only way to disable this session information is to use the notes.ini setting LOG_DISABLE_SESSION_INFO=1.

Side Note:
For privacy issues you can also avoid that database activity is logged in the database.
By default the statlog task will enable session logging. To disable the auto activity logging per database by the statlog task you can specify notes.ini No_Force_Activity_Logging=1
But this does not prevent logging for already enabled databases. You have to disable activity logging per database in the database properties
(or use an API tool to loop thru the databases to disable the activity logging on low level).
