Understanding Web service information in WSA logs
When the WSA starts up, each WSA instance receives a unique, alphanumeric identifier called the WSA ID. The WSA ID appears in the log file after the "ID", as follows:

ID f83c04d3ca9b076a:648016:1067934305:-7fff
When the WSA instance receives a request from a Web service, the WSA instance assigns the request a unique alphanumeric identifier called request ID. When the WSA instance logs information about a Web service request, the WSA includes the request ID in the following format, where wsaid-value is the WSA ID and reqid-value is the request ID:

The client uses the WSA ID and the request ID to find more detailed information in the corresponding entries of the WSA log file.
The following log (with headers suppressed) was generated for WSADefault entry type at logging level 2 (Basic):
