StackState log files

StackState keeps all log files in the var/log subdirectory of the StackState installation directory. By default this is /opt/stackstate/var/log. In case of a two-node installation logs are kept in the var/log directory on each node; logs are node-specific, which means that StackState node keeps StackState related logs, and StackGraph node keeps logs related to StackGraph.

var/log details

Inside this directory, there is a subdirectory for each type of logs kept by StackState. By default, each subdirectory has a size cap of 2 GB; when exceeded, the oldest files are deleted. Example of var/log contents:

Please note that with 1.15.0 release Elasticsearch version used by StackState changed. This means that all Elasticsearch logs are no longer kept in ./elasticsearch subdirectory and all new log files are saved in ./elasticsearch7 subdirectory. The old directory can be removed to free some disk space.

Files

StackState keeps logs in files that have a maximum size of 50 MB. When a log file exceeds 50 MB size cap, it is divided into ordered parts, as in the below example:

./sync:
total 1043088
-rw-r--r--. 1 stackstate stackstate 52430757 Dec 18 02:31 sync.Agent.2019-12-18.0.log

-rw-r--r--. 1 stackstate stackstate 52430381 Dec 18 10:26 sync.Agent.2019-12-18.3.log

Default log pattern

StackState builds log files using the following default log pattern: "%date [%thread] %-5level %logger{60} - %msg%n"
