Looks like you are on the default logging level. You need to enable the verbose logging level to get detailed information.

You can configure it via central admin > Monitoring > configure diagnostic logging > over here you have to select the category and from drop-down (Least Critical event to report to the trace log) select verbose.

You can do via powershell and enable more granular level called Verboseex.

Set-SpLogLevel -TraceSeverity VerboseEx 

this will set verboseex for all categories....Once you done with torubleshooting please dont forget to reset the logging level.to clear run the below command.
