Where are all those Log Files?

Metric Insights has a number of different pieces to the application. The log files generated by each of these programs help us to diagnose any issues you may be having with your installation of Metric Insights. Below you'll find a list of the log files we use and where they are located.  

We have included in your installation of Metric Insights a utility called package-log-files.sh to package these log files into an archive that you can then email to us.

Some of this logging can be turned on and off through the const.php file and some things can not be turned off at all.  See below for more details.
