Log Analysis

Definition updated on November 2023

What is log analysis?

Reviewing computer-generated event logs for flaws, security concerns, and other dangers is the process of log analysis. Further applications of log analysis include checking for legal compliance and examining user behavior. A log is a thorough document that records activity within the operating system, software, or hardware. Any information indicated by the system administrators, such as messages, error reports, file requests, file transfers, and sign-in/sign-out requests, is automatically recorded in the log file. Additionally, the activity is timestamped, which aids IT specialists and developers in creating an audit trail in the event of a system failure, security breach, or other unusual occurrence.
