View application logs

Event Events invoked by an application or a program running in a system are recorded as application logs. Similarly, the application logs of a running Carbon instance displays the log events of its deployed web applications and web services. The Application Logs page has been introduced as a fine-grained view of System Logs. While system logs display log events of the entire system holistically, the application logs page allows you to view the logs relevant to a particular application.
