Can you help me understand the details of filesystem created post jira installation in Linux ?

I can see the following file systems ;

analytics-logs  caches  data  database  dbconfig.xml  export  import  log  logos  monitor  plugins  scripts  structure  tmp

  • analytics-logs = Thanks to @Boris  , I understood its significance.
  • cache = ???
  • data = I can see it stores all attachments and avatars used
  • database = It probably holds details on the default database that comes with JIRA
  • dbconfig.xml = It has details of my external database that my JIRA connects to
  • export = backup files
  • import = restoration files
  • log = logfiles
  • logos = ???
  • monitor = ??? looks like environment health details
  • plugins = what exactly are these jar files ( i know it is related to all installed plugins - so does it get created when we install a new plugin ?
  • scripts = ???
  • structure = ???
  • tmp = ???

Most of it is explained here:

Some folders like Structure are created by third party add-ons and are likely storing plugin data.
