Question Log file format

Is there any documentation that speaks the log file format (key/value, fields headers, etc)?

We are starting to ingest logs into Splunk and I'd like to see how the log if formatted so I know what field names to assign to specific variables.

Thx

Hi jrw,

What product is your inquiry regarding?

If VShell/Windows, what is the version that is installed?

What edition are you using (FTPS or non-FTPS)? (If FTPS, are you trying to analyze SFTP or FTPS logs? Or both?)

Is Use W3C log file format enabled in the Common / Logging category of VShell's control panel?
