Depending on the installer used, the log files will be under a base directory:
The following files will be found in the log directory:
. |-- command.log |-- rundeck.audit.log |-- rundeck.jobs.log |-- rundeck.options.log |-- rundeck.log `-- service.log
Different facilities log to their own files:
command.log: Shell tools log their activity to the command.log
rundeck.audit.log: Authorization messages pertaining to aclpolicy
rundeck.job.log: Log of all job definition changes
rundeck.options.log: Logs remote HTTP requests for Options JSON data
rundeck.log: General Rundeck application messages
service.log: Standard input and output generated during runtime
See the #log4j-properties section for information about customizing log message formats and location.
Streaming log plugins
Streaming log plugins have two forms:
- Streaming Log Writers
- can write log data to another system (e.g. a search or log storage system) as the log data is received. Multiple Log Writers can be configured for a server, and Rundeck's filesystem-based log writer is used by default.
- Streaming Log Readers
- can load the log data from another system, rather than from the local file system. Only a single Log Reader can be configured for the a server, and Rundeck's filesystem-based log reader is used by default.
