OpenStack services logging

OpenStack services loggingΒΆ

Depending on your needs, use the following logging locations for the OpenStack services:

  • On the Fuel Master node, the log files of all OpenStack services are located in /var/log/remote/<NODE_HOSTNAME_OR_IP>/SERVICE_NAME.log.
  • On each node of your environment, the log files are located in the /var/log/<SERVICE_NAME>-all.log file and the /var/log/<SERVICE_NAME>/ folder. Some OpenStack services, for example, Horizon and Ironic, have only a log folder in /var/log/<SERVICE_NAME>/ and do not have a /var/log/<SERVICE_NAME>-all.log file.

Some OpenStack services have additional logging locations. The following table lists these locations:
