SysLog

Capture log files

Records various log types and compresses them as a zip file. The logs are saved in the application's private cache directory named by the date and time.

You can access the zip files through the system document picker - Select the SysLog app to view collected log zips.

Log types supported:

  • Kernel logs (dmsg)
  • Last kernel log (last_kmsg, if device supports it)
  • Main log (Logcat)
  • Modem log
  • Event logs
  • SELinux audit logs

To enable access to some logs (Logcat and Radio) to SysLog, you will need to grant the READ_LOGS permision using a computer with ADB.

From a command line with adb available, you can grant the READ_LOGS permission via the following command:

adb shell pm grant com.tortel.syslog android.permission.READ_LOGS

This command tells the phone's package manager to grant the READ_LOGS permission to SysLog.
