What is a log file?

A LOG (program log) file is a record of a given software program’s activities and process requests. LOG files are typically written in plain text, such as ASCII. If a computer’s operating system is accessing a LOG file, that file will be temporarily locked to users. LOG files typically contain basic information such as timestamps and dates, and a basic accounting of all activity within a given timeframe. Webservers also use LOG files to track usage and bandwidth, among other data points. LOG files for webservers can contain a rich dataset of user information, which can often be translated into data visualizations, charts, and graphical information.  Other examples of ASCII files are BAT and CFG.
