Logs and diagnostics

Airlock Gateway includes internal monitoring mechanisms that continuously test the system. Depending on the internal status, these monitoring mechanisms take the needed actions.

  1. In case you encounter problems:
  2. Check logs and events in Kibana or via syslog on the management network.
  3. Reboot the system.

Any changes of Airlock Gateway internals such as files, permissions or processes may seriously corrupt Airlock Gateway functionality and its security features. Manual changes to the system are therefore not supported by Airlock Gateway. Please use this account solely for read-only access. You may use it for troubleshooting tasks such as verifying the correctness of your network settings using netstat, tcpdump, ifconfig and other system commands. Do not modify any files or file permissions!

Logfile collection via shell script

  2. Choose option 1) System Management.
  3. In the menu System Management, choose option 5) Collect system log.
  4. Download the generated file from /var/tmp.
