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.

       -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 /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-
