Hi Pravin,

What i somwhow understan, your need is need to create log files based on user logged on.
Am i right?
What is the need behind this? I mean what exactly the need to create log based on userwise?
Is there any change in log file format or name blah blah?

if not, then could you please tell us what do you mean by userwise?

I don't really see how, but I could be wrong.

You can use the NCD stuff to add user information to log messages then post-process.
I agree. Here's the link:
