DB Connect Log Files

We're using DB Connect v3.1.4
Occasionally, an SQL Query in a Data Lab Input gets changed. I need to know where the log files are located and if they are ingested into Splunk. That way, I can alert when the query is altered.

Figured this one out by gleaning information from the Deploy DBX documentation at 

https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/DBX/3.5.0/DeployDBX/AboutSplunkDBConnect

In the DBConnect Configuration -> Settings, under Logging, the dbinput should be changed to DEBUG in order to have the app write the db_inputs.conf changes to log. 

index=_internal sourcetype=dbx* db_input action=build_scheduled_job_for_db_input

I do NOT know how verbose logging is with this setting.
