doveadm [-Dv] log find [directory]
doveadm [-Dv] log reopen
doveadm [-Dv] log test
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
Global doveadm(1) options:
-D Enables verbosity and debug messages.
-v Enables verbosity, including progress counter.
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.
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 /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-logging.conf.
This is for example useful after manually rotating the log files.
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.
This example shows how to locate the log files used by dovecot(1).
