    Hi Imran Nawaz,

    SharePoint tracks all the transactions in a log file and by default SharePoint log files are stored in the following location:

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\16\LOGS

    User's image

    Currently, the following monitoring tools are available to monitor SharePoint Server and troubleshoot problems:

    1.SharePoint Health Analyzer

    2.Timer Jobs


    4.Microsoft PowerShell

    5.System Center - Operations Manager with System Center Management Pack for SharePoint Server

    6.Event Viewer

    7.SharePoint Developer Dashboard

    8.Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)

    9.SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS)

    For more information, you can refer the documentation: Plan for monitoring in SharePoint Server - SharePoint Server | Microsoft Learn
