Netapp Filer Log files

I am new to Netapp and use various filers to support such as the FAS 2040, FAS6070, FAS3070 to name a few.  I wanted to find about the logging, where all the system messages,event, errors are logged for the filers and what are the log files and where are they located, so at least I am aware in case of troubleshooting purposes.  Is there a link which explains about logging, or can anyone advise.

 

Thanks

    The NetApp Controllers have the "messages" file, which logs the console output to these files. You can find it in the root volume, in the /etc directory.

    All other logfiles are located in the subdirectory /logs in the same location as before.

     

    If you want to get them centrally, install OnCommand Core 5.0, which will collect and track all events on your systems in a central location and provide a webinterface to access the information.
