The log provides a record of all the settings made on the system. Once a log file is specified, the system adds data to the log file each time the program is activated and a setting is made.
A log can be useful in a variety of ways:
To store previous setting attempts for use by the Previous Settings Graph.
As a record of system performance.
As a long term indicator of system clock drift over time.
As a source of information on when Internet access is available.
As an input to other programs, such as a spreadsheet or database programs, where further analysis would be done.
A summary view of all current time setting activity. Data is displayed in a list on the main screen and actions are added as they occur. Entries include the origination of the action and the result. Upon starting, the list shows the five most recent events (if available). After the program closes, the action detail can be found in the individual logs.
