Introduction to Logs

The following table summarizes the different logs used by the Directory Server.

Table 10-1 Logs Used by Directory Server

Transaction log
Ensuring data integrity by committing each update operation to the transaction log on disk before the result code for the update operation is returned to the client application.

When Directory Server accepts an update operation, it writes a log message about the operation to the transaction log. If the system crashes, Directory Server uses the transaction log to recover the database.

Access log
Flat file
Evaluating directory use patterns, verifying configuration settings, diagnosing access problems. For information about access logs, see Access Logs.
Error log
Flat file
Debugging directory deployments. For information about error logs, see Error Logs.
Audit log
Flat file
Providing audit trails for security and data integrity. For information about audit logs, see Audit Logs.
