What is Log

A list of events (security related or otherwise) that have occurred on a system. The logs may be used for troubleshooting purposes to try to identify what went wrong, when and why an incident occurred (i.e. recovery). Alternatively, logs may be used to spot suspicious activity on a system (i.e. detection).
