The "System Logs" page displays information regarding the log files of the current product. Furthermore, it has a feature that allows the user to view log files according to their preference. The log files can be retrieved in two ways:

  • If syslog-ng is configured, log files are taken from the remote location where the log files are hosted using the syslog-ng server. 
  • If syslog-ng is not configured, log files are taken from the local file system (super-tenant or Stand alone apps).

See Monitoring Logs in the WSO2 Product Administration Guide for more information about logging. 

Follow the instructions below to access the System Log statistics.

  1. Sign in. Enter your username and password to log on to the Management Console.
  2. Click on Monitor on the left side of the screen and click on System Logs.
  3. The following screen appears. The log messages displayed on this page are obtained from a memory appender. Hence, the severity (log level) of the displayed log messages is equal to or higher than the memory appender threshold. 

    • Type - Indicates the type or level of the system log
    • Date - The date that the log file was generated
    • Log Message - The log message or action. 
    • More - Allows you to view more details about the log 
  4. To view more details of a particular log, click on the More link that is associated with the file.

  5. The details of the system log appear. 
  6. You can filter the system logs using the Level drop-down. Select the category of logs you want to view. The available categories are:
    • FATAL - Fatal error messages (Severe error events that will presumably lead the application to abort.)
    • ERROR - Error messages (Error events that might still allow the application to continue running.)
    • WARN - Warning messages (Potentially harmful situations.)
    • INFO - Information messages (Informational messages that highlight the progress of the application at coarse-grained level.)
    • DEBUG - Debug messages (Fine-grained informational events that are most useful to debug an application.)
    • TRACE - Trace messages (Finer-grained informational events than the DEBUG)
  7. You can also find a particular log using the search function. Enter the name (or part of the name) of the log on the Search Logs field and click on the Search icon.

    The logs containing the search term are listed on the screen. 

    The location of the log files on the disk is specified in the <IS_HOME>/repository/conf/ file.
