MongoDB Logs

MongoDB logs contain critical log related information that can be used to obtain essential insights by splitting them into associated fields such as date & time, log level, component, context, and message. Site24x7 AppLogs is a log management product that facilitates simple log management by pooling all your logs in one single interface. Site24x7 AppLogs natively supports MongoDB along with other critical applications.  Learn more about log management with Site24x7

Logs file path

Each application writes logs in different folders and files. By default, MongoDB logs are sourced from the below-mentioned folder path for the respective Operating System. If you have logs in a different folder, you can mention it under the File Path to source them from that particular folder while creating a log profile.
