Logging and Log Files
Log directories vary by deployment type and by application.
EFA logs are saved to the following locations:
- Non-TPVM deployments: /var/log/efa. The installation logs in the /var/log/efa/installer directory are a good source for discovering the reason for a failure.
- TPVM deployments: /apps/efa_logs
- Kubernetes log files: /var/log/pods
- Keepalived service log files:
/supportsave/keepalived. The directory contains Keepalived
service logs and the
journalctllog of Keepalived for the past day. This information is useful for helping debug failovers, double faults, and gateway connectivity.
In multi-node, high availability deployments, logs are replicated on all nodes in the cluster.
The efa system supportsave script gathers all logs, database dumps, pod logs, deployment details, and system support-save and then compresses them into a ZIP folder. You can share this ZIP folder with Extreme support personnel when troubleshooting an issue.
