android evidence for tethering

Would there be any evidence on an android phone to prove whether the phone had been used as a hotspot to allow other devices to connect to it for internet usage, and if possible details of which devices did indeed connect to it, and on what dates/times? If so any specific areas/files on the system that could be searched to prove this.

Default log file should have some info on this. However, it's not accessible if the phone isn't rooted. Even if the phone is rooted though, the log is rotated (probably under 1MB), which means, if you really want this data, it's probably already overwritten.

I have never seen anyone get the files themselves. The Android internal command is logcat.
