Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Technical Overview

Flat File Format

The default flat file format is the W3C Extended Log Format (ELF). Access Manager uses this format to record the default fields in each log record. See Recorded Events for a list of default fields and their descriptions. The following code example illustrates an authentication log record formatted for a flat file.

Example 6–1 Flat File Record From amAuthentication.access

"2005-08-01 16:20:28"   "Login Success" LDAP    AUTHENTICATION-100 
   dc=example,dc=com       e7aac4e717dda1bd01      INFO 
"cn=exampleuser,ou=Example Users,dc=example,dc=com" exampleHost

In the example, the fields are in this order: Time, Data, ModuleName, MessageID, Domain, ContextID, LogLevel, LoginID, IPAddr, LoggedBy, and HostName.
