How to view logs in a human-readable format

Created by Steve Place, Modified on Wed, 24 Jan 2024 at 06:43 PM by Steve Place

If you've set your access, audit, or slow query log to type text to make it human readable, you may notice that the resulting log isn't incredibly easy to read. This is because the log still needs to be printed with the log print command.


This command can be run like so:

stardog-admin log print --text /path/to/audit.log

With this function, you can filter by time, event, etc.


By default, this command will print the log to your terminal, but you can save the log to a file by redirecting the output with >:

stardog-admin log print --text /path/to/audit.log > /path/to/human_readable_audit.log
