Puppet: Where can I find the logs of a puppet client on ubuntu?

0 votes

I'm looking for the logs on a puppet agent on Ubuntu. According to the docs it should be in /var/log/messages.

I've set log_level to debug. I don't seem to have a /var/log/messages file. I do have folders /var/log/puppetlabs/puppet and /var/log/puppetlabs/pxp-agent but both of these folders are empty.

Can somebody help?

If you are running Ubuntu 16.04 you can run the following to see the Puppet agent logs:

journalctl -u puppet.service

Hope this helps.
