What is an audit log?
An audit log or an audit trail is a type of log that contains a non-repudiable record of system activities. Although they vary significantly from system to system, they typically record information on who did what and when. Audit logs support regulatory compliance, accountability, and security. Audit logs note every change within a system, providing a complete trail of your system’s operations. Audit logs are a valuable resource for system administrators and auditors who want to examine suspicious activity on a network or diagnose and troubleshoot issues.
