Platform log files


DCImanager saves information about the operation of services in log files. The data from log files can be used to diagnose the platform operation. Log files are stored in the /var/log directories of docker containers.

Working with logs

To view the logs, go to the required container. For example, dci_back:

docker exec -it dci_back sh

Example of working with a log file:

Find out when the switch was polled
cat /var/log/dci_switch_1_handler.log | grep 'Switch status start'
