What does different log files capture in Jira?

Why we have different log files in Jira, what kind of logs each log file below captures?

atlassian-jira.log 

atlassian-greenhopper.log

atlassian-jira-http-access.log     

atlassian-jira-http-dump.log     

atlassian-jira-security.log     

atlassian-jira-sql.log

atlassian-jira-incoming-mail.log

Thanks in Advance.
