Using Professional v10.0.0.52 on Win 7 Ultimate I may not fully understand log management and would like some insight. In system settings everything is checked except "Enable Database Logging".

However when I go into Logs - Task Events nothing shows up. Is this where events my tasks have written would show up? Nothing about regular nightly jobs should show up here without have manually written a log entry?

When I go into Logs - System Events I see a log of when tasks start and stop and a summary of error message of failure when applicable.

Under Logs - Audit events I see what looks like when some of the tasks and event shows a few variations: Log on workstation, task create, task renamed... what does the log on workstation mean?

When I have a task that calls a another task and that sub task has an error in a function. Currently it seems cumbersome to track down the error. The email that is sent doesn't show the lowest level but the step in the outermost task. (shouldn't it be the most nested step? or do I need to configure it somewhere to do that?) Shouldn't I see somewhere in System events, Task Events, or somewhere a trace of the nesting of the error?

On tasks when I look at properties and enable extended step information (can this be enable for all tasks globally?) and check log to additional file I see better information.
However, is there somewhere wher the info is explained? I see in every entry what appears to be a date then a time but the time in incorrect 2014-11-26 15-59-26, (I must be interpreting incorrectly 11/26/2014 3:59:26PM because that's in the future for when I'm looking at the log).

Thanks for insight,
