P.1.1 Scope

The Application Event Logging Service Class defines an application-level class-of-service that facilitates the network transfer of Event Log Records to be logged or recorded in a central location.

The Application Event Logging Service Class addresses the class of application specific logs (e.g., procedural event logs) that are managed by a medical application. The Application Event Logging Service Class does not specify the means of accessing the central logs.

Note: This Service Class does not address system security or audit logs that are managed by general system logging applications, and which may use non-DICOM protocols (e.g., SYSLOG).
