CommonSpot log files are variously prepended with a date or date-sitename stamp as shown in this example /logs/ directory.
In general, each log file header contains date, time, CommonSpot build, user ID, server and site information, specific error type, error location, and event duration in milliseconds.
CommonSpot does not currently register event details. For example, a log record might show that a certain user changed security for a given page at a certain time, but does not include which permissions were added or removed.
Note: Unless noted, the latest log entries appear at the bottom of each file.
CommonSpot logs the following to /commonspot/logs:
errors.log - Collects startup, module and page-generation errors for this CommonSpot instance. Each error includes a stack trace of modules called and processed at error time.
