       xferlog - FTP Server transfer log file


       The  xferlog  file contains transfer logging information from the FTP Server, in.ftpd(1M).
       You can use the logfile capability to change the location of  the  log  file.  See  ftpac-

       By  default,  each  server  entry  is composed of a single line of the following form. All
       fields are separated by spaces.

	 current-time  transfer-time	remote-host  bytes-transferred	\
	 transfer-type	special-action-flag  direction access-mode  username
	 service-name  authentication-method  authenticated-user-id \

       The xferlog format capability can be used to customize the transfer log file format  used.
       In  addition  to those in the default format, it also supports chroot-filename, file-size,
       and restart-offset fields. See ftpaccess(4).

       The fields are defined as follows:
