12.4. Concept: Log for Drupal 8, Drupal 9

Last updated October 15, 2019

What is a Log?

Your site captures system events in a log to be reviewed by an authorized individual at a later time. The log is a list of recorded events containing usage data, performance data, errors, warnings, and operational information. It is vital to check the log on a regular basis as it is often the only way to tell what is going on.

You can find your site’s recent log messages in the Manage administrative menu by navigating to Reports > Recent log messages (admin/reports/dblog).
