SAP XI Log or Trace files ?



I had developed custom applications involving different systems like IDES, R/3, File system and web services and BPM scenarios.

These systems are integrated with XI, and now I want to monitor the message exchanges between these systems.

I need all information (in form of txt or log trace file) containing

which systems involved. all Parameter, communication channels adapter, each message header, content of the messages etc.

I think SAP XI is best place to find that information but i do not know how?

Log files contain lot of information about user activities like transactions executed, messages exchanged between systems etc......I already tried to monitor the log files at XI level using activating user traces by transaction sm04 and sm51 etc.,

I also tried Monitoring facilities by SXMB_MONI, provided in Runtime workbench, as it is graphical based and information is divided into different sections but I need all information at one place (you can say that i need raw information)

I have the following questions.....

1) Will SAP XI be the right choice to monitor such information ? If yes, then where and how ?

2) Is there any combined log file in SAP XI which contain all log information about the connected systems etc.?

3) Where I can find the log files of SAP XI ?

4) How communication (message exchanges) between composite applications is monitored in SAP ?
