Each log message contains a Type (
type) field that indicates its category, and in which log file it is stored.
|Event||Records system and administrative events, such as downloading a backup copy of the configuration, or daemon activities.|
|Traffic||Records traffic flow information, such as an HTTP/HTTPS request and its response, if any.|
|Attack||Records attack and intrusion attempts.|
|Avoid recording highly frequent log types such as traffic logs to the local hard disk for an extended period of time. Excessive logging frequency can cause undue wear on the hard disk and may cause premature failure.|
