       xferlog - ProFTPD server logfile


       The  xferlog  file  contains  logging  information from the FTP server daemon, proftpd(8).
       This file usually is found in /var/log but can be located anywhere by using  a  proftpd(8)
       configuration  directive.  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   authenticated-user-id  completion-status

       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.

       file-size           is the size of the transferred file in bytes.

       filename            is  the  name  of  the transferred file.  If the filename contains any
                           spaces or control characters, each such character is  replaced  by  an
                           underscore ('_') character.

       transfer-type       is a single character indicating the type of transfer. Can be one of:

                                  T         file was tar'ed
                                  _         no action was taken

       direction           is the direction of the transfer. Can be one of:
                                  o         outgoing

                                  d         deleted

       access-mode         is the method by which the user is logged in. Can be one of:
                                  a         (anonymous) is for an anonymous guest user.
                                  r         (real) is for a local authenticated user.

                           is the method of authentication used. Can be one of:
                                  0         none
                                  1         RFC931 Authentication

                           is the user id returned by the authentication method.  A * is used  if
                           an authenticated user id is not available.

       completion-status   is  a  single character indicating the status of the transfer.  Can be
                           one of:
                                  c         complete transfer
