What are Log Files?

Log Files in a computer system are used to keep a registry of events, processes, software runs, and communication history (messages) between different users of a communication system. Executable files can also create and maintain log files to keep a track of all program-related activities.

The actual act of writing information in the log file is known as "logging". Every computing device maintains log files, including desktops, laptops, mobile phones, tablets, web servers, and much more. There are a number of different file formats used for this purpose.
