Logging SFTP Transactions

The log facility for sftp-server and internal://sftp-server is set with SftpSysLogFacility. Here, the informational level logs very verbosely. (For example, stat-calls are logged. This can happen hundreds of times when reading a directory listing.) Usually, you want to use a higher level (for example, notice) for logging SFTP.

Nothing is logged by the SFTP-service if the SftpSysLogFacility is not set in the configuration.

In /etc/ssh2/sshd2_config add the following:

SftpSysLogFacility  LOCAL7

In /etc/syslog.conf add the following:

local7.notice       /var/log/sftp
