monitor command shows a real time display of the server logs of a Vault
server. This command accepts a log level as an argument, which can be different
from the log level that the Vault server was started with.
monitor command honors the
VAULT_ADDR environment variable. The address
specified determines the target server that will be monitored.
Note that this command is designed to run indefinitely. It is similar to
tail -f in the Unix world. This command will not exit on its own unless
it encounters an unexpected error. As a user, you must terminate this
process yourself to shut it down.
If Vault is emitting log messages faster than a receiver can process them, the some log lines will be dropped.
Monitor server logs at the
debug log level:
$ vault monitor -log-level=debug
The following flags are available in addition to the standard set of flags included on all commands.
(string: "info")- Monitor the Vault server at this log level. Valid log levels are (in order of detail) "trace", "debug", "info", "warn", "error". If this option is not specified, "info" is used.
