Log files are the main source of the most important information regarding what has happened to your environment. For example, any development or testing task requires access to this crucial information.
So, to view your node’s logs, follow these steps:
Log into the CirrusGrid dashboard with your credentials.
Click the Log icon for the required node.
The logs tab will appear at the bottom of your dashboard. If your environment contains several nodes of the same type, you can choose the one you want to see the logs for in the drop-down list.
Using the buttons above the log text you can Clear the log or Refresh it. Use Prev and Next buttons for navigating through the log body if it is large.
In order to make the logs monitoring even more convenient, the Auto refresh feature is used, which is enabled by default. It makes the currently opened log file to be refreshed every 3 seconds and thus removes any delay or necessity to refresh them manually in order to get the up-to-date information, allowing to track real time processes like installation or updating with ease.
If some issue happens you can disable Auto refresh to concentrate on that information rather than on a new one. For that, uncheck the appropriate option in the Refresh drop-down list above the log output window.view log files 3 auto refresh
In just the same way, you can enable the Auto refresh option again.
Every log file in the folder can be easily deleted directly from the log list. To perform this, hover over the required server log and click the appeared cross button or select it and press Delete at the top tools panel.
Logs can also be downloaded via FTP. To learn more about the FTP module’s installation and usage, see the FTP/FTPS Support document.
Here is a list of available log files you can view depending on the node:
If you use the remote GIT/SVN repository for deploying your application, a new vcs_update pull log file is added to your Maven node (for Java) or Apache/NGINX application server (for PHP), which contains the information on your project’s building and deploying.
