Configure transfer log

The transfer log tracks the file uploads and downloads on the system and records a lot of basic and additional information, such as whether the transfer was initiated by the server or by a user, protocol used and other information.

The tracking information is kept in the database and in a log file named xferlog, which is located in the <FILEDRIVEHOME>/var/logs directory. For information about the xferlog log file, see General log files. If you have the Enterprise Cluster (EC) option, you can store the transfer log data in a separate external database from the rest of the SecureTransport data. See Direct log data to separate Oracle databases.

Use the Transfer Logging page to add and edit logging entries to determine which transfers will be logged. You can also enable this feature for a specific user class.

The following topics provide how-to instructions for managing the transfer log configuration:
