The Audit log provides insight into the activities that are performed on the system. It provides the options to monitor the activities and evaluate in case of security incidents.

All the logs corresponding to the server components are streamed to fluentD. FluentD picks up the audit logs from the predefined location and writes them to Elasticsearch. Details of the audit log are viewed through Kibana Dashboard.
