Altair® Panopticon


Audit Logging

The Panopticon Real Time can also produce audit logs. All of the audit logging will be directed to a file prefixed ‘panopticon-audit’ in the Tomcat log folder . The audit logs can be configured just like the regular logs produced by Panopticon Real Time. Refer to Configuring Panopticon Real Time Logs for more information on how to configure logs.

Panopticon Real Time is pre-configured to generate audit logs on an INFO level. Most of the messages are logged with INFO level. However, there are certain actions that are logged at different levels, such as FINE.


The audit logs contain the following information:




Timestamp for when the executed action occurred. The format of the timestamp is YYYY-mm-ddTHH:MM:SS (e.g., 2015-12-24T15:30:40).

Log Level

The severity of the log level.


The username of the user that executed the action. The username will be ANONYMOUS if the user is not authenticated.


The user’s IP address.


Detailed message about the executed action.


Audit logs use comma (,) as a delimiter to separate these values.
