Configuring Log Files

You can configure log files using the logging parameters.

Log file names use the following format: [MAC address]_[Type of log].log . For example, if the MAC address of your phone is 0004f2203b0 , the app log file name is 0004f2203b0-app.log .

The phone writes information into several different log files. The following table describes the type of information in each.
