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 and download 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).
