Transactional Log File(s)

The ALM contains a transactional logging system. As long as the server is running, it logs all transactions to the location specified in the alus.conf file. The level of logging is also specified and can be anonymous (default) or detailed. The anonymous logs make sure that no private data is disclosed. All private data such as username, host, and share strings are one-way hashed to make the original values irretrievable. These anonymous logs are sent to Altair for usage reporting. If detailed logging is enabled, a second set of transaction logs is also produced, keeping the private data in a legible format. These are NOT sent to Altair, and are stored in a separate directory named detailed.
