Parameter log_format allows to set the Unit Test Framework log format to one of the formats supplied by the framework. To specify custom log format use the custom log formatting API.

The only acceptable values for this parameter are the names of the output formats supplied by the framework. By default the framework uses human readable format (HRF) for the testing log. This format is similar to a compiler error format. Alternatively you can specify XML or JUNIT as a log format which are easier to process by testing automation tools.
