Guide for mp-log and dp-log troubleshooting

L1 Bithead

Hi All,


Is there a comprehensive guide for knowing which logs to look at in the mp-log and dp-log eg. what log files to look when troubleshooting a particular issue on.


For example if im troubleshooting some OSPF issue, i can look at the mp-log routed.log or for lacp it would be the l2ctrld.log.

What @OtakarKlier already posted is the most comprehensive public resource I believe is published. You can also just try searching for the knowledgebase articles for troubleshooting whatever problem you are having to see if it's mentioned in the KB article. Anything beyond that I've ever seen is an internal PAN resource that can't be publicly shared. 

Thanks for sharing these links, these are helpful though not exactly what i was looking for.
