The columns display the following information:

As of Tanzu Operations Manager v3.0.3, you can directly download logs for instances and instance groups from the Status page in a product tile.

The downloaded log links appear on the Status tab.

The Logs column for each instance group contains two links:

  • The first link retrieves logs for the instance.

  • The second link retrieves logs for the entire instance group.

Clicking either link shows a loading icon as logs are queued for download. When the logs are ready for download, the icon changes to a download link.

As in previous Tanzu Operations Manager versions, you can also download log files from the Logs tab in a product tile.

Tanzu Operations Manager VM disk space

Tanzu Operations Manager stores its’ logs on the Tanzu Operations Manager VM in the /tmp directory.

The logs collect over time and do not self-delete. To prevent the VM from running out of disk space, clear the log entries from /tmp by restarting the VM.
