Tower logfiles have been consolidated and can be easily accessed from two centralized locations:
/var/log/tower/ directory, you can view logfiles related to:
callback_receiver.log: captures callback receiver logs that handles callback events when running ansible jobs.
dispatcher.log: captures log messages for the Tower dispatcher worker service.
management_playbooks.log: captures the logs of management playbook runs, the isolated job runs like copying the metadata, etc.
rsyslog.err: captures rsyslog errors authenticating with external logging services when sending logs to them.
task_system.log: - captures the logs of tasks that Tower is running in the background, such as adding tower cluster instances and logs related to information gathering/processing for analytics, etc.
tower.log: captures the log messages such as runtime errors that occur when the job is executed.
tower_rbac_migrations.log: captures the logs for rbac database migration or upgrade.
tower_system_tracking_migrations.log: captures the logs tower system tracking migration or upgrade.
wsbroadcast.log: captures the logs of websocket connections in the tower nodes.
isolated_manager.log: captures logs associated with isolated nodes.
/var/log/supervisor/ directory, you can view logfiles related to:
awx-callback-receiver.log: captures the log of callback receiver that handles callback events when running ansible jobs, managed by supervisord.
awx-daphne.log: captures the logs of Websocket communication of WebUI.
awx-dispatcher.log: captures the logs that occur when dispatching a task to a tower instance, such as when running a job.
awx-rsyslog.log: captures the logs for rsyslog service.
awx-uwsgi.log: captures the logs related to uWSGI, which is an application server.
awx-wsbroadcast.log: captures the logs of websocket service that is used by tower.
failure-event-handler.stderr.log: captures the standard errors for /usr/bin/failure-event-handler supervisord’s subprocess.
supervisord.log: captures the logs related to supervisord itself.
/var/log/supervisor/ directory includes
stdout files for all services as well.
You can expect the following log paths to be generated by services used by Tower (and Ansible Automation Platform):
