This topic provides information about BBR logging. Use this information when troubleshooting a failed backup or restore using BBR.

Understand Logging

By default, BBR displays the following:

  • The backup and restore scripts that it finds
  • When it starts or finishes a stage, such as pre-backup scripts or backup scripts
  • When the process is complete
  • When any error occurs

BBR writes any errors associated with stack traces to a file in of the form bbr-TIMESTAMP.err.log in the current directory.

If more logging is needed, use the optional --debug flag to print the following information:

  • Logs about the API requests made to the BOSH server
  • All commands executed on remote instances
  • All commands executed on local environment
  • Standard in and standard out streams for the backup and restore scripts when they are executed
