Does scp command have the option of logging its activities? Like a configuration file?

If not, why not just direct the output to a file. I don't know the exact syntax of this scp command, but if you did something like:

scp -v [options] [/source] [/destination] >> var/log/scp.log

would this accomplish what you want?
I imply that the -v is for a verbose output, and the bold stuff is to direct output to a log file.

you may check the logs in /var/log/secure, ssh and scp action should be recorded there.
