Where can I find the logfiles on a VCS

Hello,

The eventlog can be read via the webpage. But how can I download the complete eventlog file from the VCS via SFTP (eg WinSCP)?

Where is this logfile located?

Where can I find the logfiles on a VCS

Hi Geert,

the eventlog is written to the file /mnt/harddisk/log/messages on the VCS.

The messages log file (Along with various other log files) is rotated once it reaches around 10 megabytes in size, so that messages becomes messages.1 and a new messages file is created.

Further, the previous messages.1 is rotated to messages.2 and so on, and the VCS holds up to 200 rotations for most or all of the various log files.

Hope this helps,

Andreas
