This article explains how to open Acronis Backup Gateway logs. It is required for the troubleshooting storage-related issues.
In Acronis Storage 2.0, logs were written to a .gz file. Since Acronis Storage 2.1, Acronis Software-Defined Infrastructure and Acronis Cyber Infrastructure, logs are written to a .zst file.
Log location, format and default rotation can be checked in Acronis Backup Gateway configuration file, e.g.:
[root@aci-node-01 ~]# grep '^log' /etc/vstorage/abgw.config
log.file = /var/log/vstorage/abgw.log.zst
log.rotate = 50x200M
Depending on the configuration, log will be in plain text compressed as .gz or as .zst file:
Open compressed .gz log with the following command:
# zless /var/log/vstorage/abgw.log.gz
Open compressed .zst log:
# zstdcat /var/log/vstorage/abgw.log.zst | less
