Enterprise geodatabases use log file tables to maintain lists of selected records. Records are written to log file tables for later use by the application in the following situations:
- You (or a tool or other process you run) create a selection set of a specific size—more than 1,000 records in ArcGIS Pro or more than 1,000 records when object IDs are requested from a feature service.
- You reconcile or post to a versioned geodatabase.
Log file tables are global temporary tables that store the IDs of the selected features so they can be redisplayed. This allows faster analysis and data processing.
