If I enable UFW to block outgoing internet connections and set logging to "low," the log report that appears at /var/log only lists the PID of the application involved, not the application's name. The PID is useless information in a log because the PID does not live past a session. And when I view the log, I'm always looking at past sessions.

So how can I make the Log File record the name of the process that caused an outgoing internet connection attempt?
