How can I view logs on a WLAN device

Logs generated on a WLAN device are saved in the log buffer. After the number of logs reaches the specified threshold, the logs are saved to the syslogfile or logfile folder in the device's flash memory.

A device records user operations in logs, so you can also view the log file to check operations.

To view the log buffer and log files on a WLAN device, perform the following operations:

- To view the file logs in the logfile folder, run the following commands in the user view:

cd logfile //Enter the root directory of the logfile folder.

dir //Display all files in the root directory.
