When a user is using Sci2, information about all the operations he or she performs will be saved in the log files. Log files are simple text documents that track all the operations performed during a Sci2 session. Each time users start the tool a new log file will be created, and Sci2 will save these log files as long as the tool is installed on the user's machine. These files will help you better understand specifically how the algorithms employed during a session are processing the data. The log files will also give a user information on who the implementer(s) and integrator(s) of the algorithms are, time and date information for algorithm executrion, algorithm input parameters, and specific information on any errors that may occur during Sci2 operation.

To see copies of the log files open your Sci2 directory and go to the "logs" directory:
Users running Sci2 in Mac operating systems may take the following steps to view log files. Log files can be viewed by right clicking (control + click) on the Sci2 icon. Select "Show Package Contents" from the menu (see figure below).
