Topic: Where is the system log file?

The content of this topic has been archived on 28 Apr 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.

While playing with 3G connection with different modems I would like to follow system log file "on-line" with tail -f, but I cannot find the logfile anywhere. Where is the log located in OpenWrt (Backfire)?



logread -f

Oh my I am stupid! Indeed there is -f option also in logread command. Thanks!

No worries. Took me a while to find it, too. wink

The discussion might have continued from here.
