uf-log can be used to examine the instrument log stream in a Finnigan raw file. The instrument log records typically contain more than a hundred parameters, including operational data on the pumps, power supplies, ion optics and injectors -- everything that may be useful in the auditing of the instrument's performance.
Each record is timestamped with the current retention time of the sample.
