How to review Job logs

How to review Job logs


The logs of the specific Jobs can be found under Operate -> Job status -> Job Logs -> Look for the Job ID(In this case 0411_0023): files on netyce server

This would pop up a new screen that has Job logs and other logs.

Different files in the log file

There are different files that are created in the job log.  Below is a short description of each.
<job_id>.log : Is the Job log file
<job_id>.tsk: is the scenario/task that is executed.  Includes the parameters supplied, node name and so on.
<job_id>.cmd/<node_name>.cmd : is the commands that are executed on the device.
<node_name>_mgmt.sess.log : Session log from the device/node.

(1) Clicking each of them would lead us to the specific section of that file on the page.
(2) In case we want to download a specific log file, this can be done by clicking on the file name under each section.
