Viewing the system log

In addition to the Alerts panel on the FileStore Management Console (GUI) Dashboard, the FileStore system log is a good place to find out more about problems that may occur. The system log, sfsfs_event.log, is stored in the /var/log directory.

To view the system log:

  1. Use the support account to login.

  2. Navigate to the /var/log directory.

  3. Open the sfsfs_event.log file and search for alert messages (or other types of messages).

    For example, in the log file shown in Figure: FileStore system log, you can search for messages with an alert tag and determine that a DAR-enabled file system did not go online because the NTP server is not enabled.
