Where are DSS logs?

July 25, 2015


You often need to access to the complete DSS logs. To find them, first, locate your Data Dir (see this article), and then:

  • The main "backend" log is:
    DATA-DIR/run/backend.log
  • If you are using Hadoop (Hive, Pig...) with DSS, you may find a lot of information in the complete Hadoop logs:
    DATA-DIR/run/hproxy.log
  • optionally, you may find some info in the nginx logs:
    DATA-DIR/run/nginx.log

The "backend.log" is the main file to look at when debugging or hunting for errors.
