- Logs written by svlogd for the services that write to stdout, for example:
- Logs written by the service directly, for example
The log files are located at
/var/log/deveo, and its recommended to keep them on a separate partition. The rule of thumb is, if the
/var/log/deveo/<service>/current (maintained by svlogd) file is empty, look for
*.log files (maintained by the service directly) within the same directory.
To see all logs in real-time, use the "tail" switch provided by the Deveo control utility:
sudo deveo-ctl tail
The svlogd logs are rotated by the daemon itself. However, the logs written by the services directly are rotated with logrotate. Regardless of the type, by default all logs are rotated and compressed daily and kept for 30 days. See and customize log rotation settings through logging configuration flags.
In addition to logs created by the services, Deveo stores a number of audit logs. These logs are in JSON format located under
/var/log/deveo/audit. By default, the audit logs are rotated and compressed daily and kept for 90 days, however they can be fine-tuned through logging configuration flags.
