Log File (Troubleshooting)

Log File (Troubleshooting)


In general, the log file can be found in the current user's home directory.
Before sending or looking at the file, it might be useful to change the log level to DEBUG (default is WARN) to capture the maximum amount of information possible to aide the debugging process.

Log levels

  1. ERROR
    1. Designates error events that might still allow the application to continue running.
  2. WARN
    1. Designates potentially harmful situations.
  3. INFO
    1. Designates informational messages that highlight the progress of the application at coarse-grained level.
  4. DEBUG
    1. Designates fine-grained informational events that are most useful to debug an application.

Log file location


  1. C:\Users\{user.name}\.kadeck_log


  1. /Users/{user.name}/.kadeck_log


  1. /home/{user.name}/.kadeck_log
