Currently, a log on the Client is useless, because it does not save the information from the "Client console" (status bar) in log.nsf.
In the setting of the Client ("File -> Preferences...") there Log Settings, which has a tick "Enable Logging". Set it, but it does not affect on the recording in the log. Moreover, if you close Notes Client, and then open, then this ticked in the settings is disabled! That is, when you restart the client it spontaneously reset.
Also, nothing can help "Monitoring Configuration" on local (events4.nsf), because the settings can be done only for servers. Generaly purpose of this database "on local" is unclear...  
Total, in a local log are heaps of documents with similar content:
21.10.2010 11:53:59 Dynamic Client Configuration started
21.10.2010 11:53:59 Initializing Dynamic Client Configuration
21.10.2010 11:53:59 Dynamic Client Configuration updating policy information
21.10.2010 11:53:59 Dynamic Client Configuration updating location information
21.10.2010 11:53:59 Dynamic Client Configuration shutdown  
which is not very informative, and certainly not something that would like to.
Please, make the ability to save information from the status bar in the log, this is especially useful during the development and debugging applications.

At least in Notes 7 & 8 you can output status bar history into a file on your workstation. Add the following to your notes.ini:

Lotus Notes - a framework for working with databases, and why somewhere to climb on the file system and search for some files? Log analysis code is also tied to the files?
It is not appropriate.
Should be:
1. working in the settings is ticked "Enable Logging";
2. suppose, for example, this tick leads to the following settings in the notes.ini:
