What is a LOG file?

A LOG file is a log used by various operating systems and programs. It typically contains a plain text log of certain events with their timestamps. LOG files may be created by the operating system to keep track of system events or by a software installation program to list location and names of installed files.

More Information

Web servers also generate log files to track visitors and to monitor bandwidth usage. Web stats programs allow Web hosts to analyze log files through generated charts and graphs, which present logged website traffic data in a graphical format.
