How does IIS change its log file name?

Hello,

From what I understand, IIS log file name changes on daily basis.  right?

This is what I know please correct me if I'm wrong:

It will change its name day by day,  Today is  April 25 2014 so the log file name will be XX140425.log to XX140426.log by tomorrow (in YYMMDD format) and  also its prefix and postfix might change now I see in140425.log but if I change a setting in it (such as changing it from daily log to hourly log time period) then it will add up a number (assuming time is 12:35 pm) then the file name will be renamed to in14.0425(12).log

Also, if I change from IIS type to W3C type its prefix will change.  Any idea if there is any reference so I can understand this better and more in details?

Thanks.
