The error log has two different formats. The format used is dependent upon the file system the log is configured for. For every file system other than the QSYS file system the log file is a text file. Within the QSYS file system the log entries are stored within a multiple field data base file. The Error Log Filename configuration value is used to configure the error log file.
There are three levels of logging: Error, Warning, Informational. The Error level of logging is the most severe level of the three with the Informational level being the least severe. The WebMaster has the ability to indicate what level of error messages to be placed in the error log file through the configuration value Error Log Level.
The following is the format of the error log text file entries:
[day-of-week month day time year] Program name reporting error:
Level of error message: Error message text
The following is the list of the fields, in their respective order, included
within a data base error log file entry:

MMis the month using 2 character positions
DDis the day of the month using 2 character positions.
HHis the hour displayed as a value of (00 - 23 hours) using 2 character positions
