eft_xferlog - EFT server logfile
The eft_xferlog file contains logging information from the eftp4linux
eurofile server daemon, eftd(8). This file usually is found in
/var/adm, but can be located anywhere by using a option to eftd(8).
eftd uses the same format as wu-ftpd for its log files. Thus, you might
be able to use or adapt tools that have been written to analyse wu-ftpd
xferlog files. However, for some fields of the log file different
semantics apply. This is because they are now related to the isdn
domain rather than the internet.
Each server entry is composed of a single line of the following form,
with all fields being separated by spaces.
current-time transfer-time remote-host file-size
filename transfer-type special-action-flag direction
access-mode username service-name authentication-method
current-time is the current local time in the form "DDD MMM dd
hh:mm:ss YYYY". Where DDD is the day of the week,
MMM is the month, dd is the day of the month, hh is
the hour, mm is the minutes, ss is the seconds, and
YYYY is the year.
transfer-time is the total time in seconds for the transfer.
remote-host is the remote host’s isdn number.
file-size is the size of the transferred file in bytes.
filename is the name of the transferred file.
transfer-type is a single character indicating the type of
transfer. Can be one of:
a for an ascii transfer
b for a binary transfer
As eftp4linux only supports binary transfers, this will allways be ’b’.
special-action-flag is one or more single character flags indicating
any special action taken. Can be one or more of:
C file was compressed
U file was uncompressed
T file was tar’ed
_ no action was taken
As on-the-fly-compression is not supported by eftp4linux, this will
always be ’_’.
direction is the direction of the transfer. Can be one of:
access-mode is the method by which the user is logged in. Can
be one of:
a (anonymous) is for an anonymous
g (guest) is for an passworded guest
user (see the guestgroup command
in eftaccess(5) ).
r (real) is for a local
username is the local username, or if guest, the ID string
service-name is the name of the service being invoked, which is
is the method of authentication used. Can be one
1 RFC931 Authentication
As RFC931 authentication is not used by eftp4linux, this will always be
is the user id returned by the authentication
method. A * is used if an authenticated user id is
not available. With eftp4linux, this will be the
same as the user name.
