This article covers the various log files used by SFTP Gateway.
Log file locations
These are the logs of interest when troubleshooting SFTP Gateway:
/opt/sftpgw/log/application.log /opt/sftpgw/log/sftp-audit.log /var/log/secure /var/log/sftpgw/cloudinit.log
And this is what these logs do:
application.log: Java events and errors.
sftp-audit.log: SFTP actions and authentication.
secure: SSH authentication events
cloudinit.log: Server related issues that happen at first launch
Also, you can see the Java logs:
sudo su journalctl -u sftpgw-admin-api # opens the log using `less` journalctl -u sftpgw-admin-api -f # this is to tail or follow the log
The log files are streamed to CloudWatch. At the moment, there is a misconfiguration. We will include an article with details on working around this.
