    This blog will let you know how to do troubleshooting in Redis. Redis logs are stored at location /var/log/redis/redis-server.log

    To view the last 10 lines:

     sudo tail /var/log/redis/redis-server.log 

    On Ubuntu 14.04 Redis log files are located at /var/log/redis_6379.log.

    To view the last 10 lines:

      sudo tail /var/log/redis_6379.log


    How to Check Archived Log Files


    Redis also archives older log files. See a list of the archived logs with: 

     ls /var/log/redis 


    redis-server.log  redis-server.log.1.gz

    You can gunzip an older file:

    sudo gunzip /var/log/redis/redis-server.log.1.gz

    Now to see its last 10 lines:

    sudo tail /var/log/redis/redis-server.log.1

    Using find to Search for Logs

    If logs are not found in any of these locations then you can find it by more general search using find in the /var/logs directory:

    find /var/log/* -name *redis*

    Or you can search your entire system. It will turn up a few permission warnings, which is normal.It will also turn up every file with redis in the name, which includes installation files:

    find / -path /sys -prune -o -path /proc -prune -o -name *redis*

    Setting the Log Location in redis.conf

    Log files of Redis is specified in Redis's configuration file, redis.conf, often located at /etc/redis/redis.conf.

    Open that file for editing:

    sudo nano /etc/redis/redis.conf 

    Locate the logfile line:


    logfile /var/log/redis/redis-server.log
