Getting Logs

"Dumping a log" has a totally different meaning in Sysadmin speak.
Sometimes there might be an issue you need to resolve. The main way to figure out what's going wrong is to log into the server using SSH and check the logs.

This should tell you pretty quickly if something isn't working in real time. If you can't diagnose the problem then and there, it might be something the Chainflip team would be able to take a look at. To fully diagnose a problem, Chainflip nodes dump their logs into a file which you can download and send to the team.

Downloading Log Files

If you're using a Mac or Linux computer (NOT your server), you'll need to open your terminal (Not your SSH client) and use the following command:
scp [email protected]:/var/log/chainflip-*.log /home/chainflip
This command will pull your log files from the server and place it in a folder called /home/chainflip/. Make sure you change this command as needed, including your SSH username, IP address, target filename (node or engine) and destination path on your computer. For example:
scp [email protected]:/var/log/chainflip-*.log /somefolder
If you use a keyfile to access your server (congrats to you if you are!), use this format:
scp -i key_file.pem scp [email protected]:/var/log/chainflip-*.log /home/chainflip
