DOVEADM-LOG(1)			    Dovecot			DOVEADM-LOG(1)

NAME
       doveadm-log - Locate, test or reopen Dovecot's log files

SYNOPSIS
       doveadm [-Dv] log errors	[-s min_timestamp]
       doveadm [-Dv] log find [directory]
       doveadm [-Dv] log reopen
       doveadm [-Dv] log test

DESCRIPTION
       The doveadm log commands	are used to locate and reopen the log files of
       dovecot(1).  It's also possible to test the configured targets  of  the
       *log_path settings.

OPTIONS
       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity	and debug messages.

       -o setting=value
	      Overrides	 the  configuration  setting from /usr/local/etc/dove-
	      cot/dovecot.conf and from	the userdb with	the given  value.   In
	      order to override	multiple settings, the -o option may be	speci-
	      fied multiple times.

       -v     Enables verbosity, including progress counter.

COMMANDS
   log errors
       doveadm log errors [-s min_timestamp]

       The log errors command is used to show the last	- up to	1,000 -	errors
       and warnings.  If no output is generated, no errors have	occurred since
       the last	start.

       -s min_timestamp
	      An integer value,	representing seconds since the	epoch  -  also
	      known  as	 Unix  timestamp.   When  a  min_timestamp  was	given,
	      doveadm(1) will only show	errors occurred	since  that  point  in
	      time.

   log find
       doveadm log find	[directory]

       The  log	find command is	used to	show the location of the log files, to
       which dovecot(1)	sends its log messages.	 If dovecot(1) logs  its  mes-
       sages  through  syslogd(8) and doveadm(1) could not find	any log	files,
       you can specify the directory where your	syslogd	writes its log files.

   log reopen
       doveadm log reopen

       This command causes doveadm to reopen all log files, configured in  the
       log_path,  info_log_path	 and  debug_log_path settings.	These settings
       are configured in /usr/local/etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-logging.conf.
       This is for example useful after	manually rotating the log files.

   log test
       doveadm log test

       This command causes doveadm to write the	 message  "This	 is  Dovecot's
       priority	log (timestamp)" to the	configured log files.  The used	prior-
       ities are: debug, info, warning,	error and fatal.

EXAMPLE
       This example shows how to locate	the log	files used by dovecot(1).

       doveadm log find
       Looking for log files from /var/log
       Debug: /var/log/dovecot.debug
       Info: /var/log/mail.log
       Warning:	/var/log/mail.log
       Error: /var/log/mail.log
       Fatal: /var/log/mail.log
