systemd & sftp logging

We have several cron jobs that use curl-sftp to transfer files generated by a php script.

Where is the logging for this? I can’t find it anywhere. journalctl just shows subsystem requests, it doesn’t show when the server made an outbound connection to another server, transfer status, etc. where can you find this in opensuse 13.1?

Nowhere, there is no default log for outgoing connections.

Your scripts need to handle it on their own or you need to set-up auditing which is a pretty broad concept.

client “utility” apps don’t log this type of activity automatically. If you were using a dedicated FTP client, then there <might> be some logging.

If you have access to the Server, then logging all activity including from your client is usually enabled.
