You typically find multiple log files in the specified directory. The first four characters represent the date. The next three characters identify the agent. A three-digit extension allows for multiple log files created on the same day. For example, a log file named 0518poa.001 indicates that it is a POA log file, created on May 18. If you restarted the POA on the same day, a new log file is started, named 0518poa.002.
