Each log message contains a Type (type) field that indicates its category, and in which log file it is stored.

FortiWeb appliances can record the following categories of log messages:

Log types

Log type Description
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.
