Logging boot messages

I'm looking for a way to log boot messages in a file.

Could found many threads on the forum, and this wiki thread about it, but they just say how to avoid clearing TTY1 after the boot, while I'd prefer to log messages somewhere.
Could also read that logging is not trivial because file systems are mounted read-only during boot.

Is there any workaround to this?
Couldn't we simply store boot messages in memory and flush them out in a file just when the booting process is done?

Re: Logging boot messages

You mean like 'dmesg' or something more? Check /var/log/kernel.log.

Re: Logging boot messages

Nope, I'm talking about the boot messages, the lines ending with a [DONE] or [FAIL] (it's the output of daemons started by init and maybe something else).

Sometimes I can see some extra output or some [FAIL], but ain't quick enough to read what it's saying or what is failing.

I'd like to log those messages in a file since sometimes I boot or restart this machine from remote.

Re: Logging boot messages

I'm not sure how accurate or safe it is but you can change 'rc::sysinit:/etc/rc.sysinit' and 'rm:2345:wait:/etc/rc.multi' lines in /etc/inittab to e.g.

rc::sysinit:/etc/rc.sysinit | tee /run/sysinit.log
rm:2345:wait:/etc/rc.multi | tee /run/multi.log

I've tested it and it seemed to work.
The logs will disappear on reboot.
The output of the rc scripts lost the pretty colors and formating (columns).

Well i did a quick search for this. I was thinking of a way to take a screenshot of tty1, so you can simply view that image.

I found a few tricks.

1. cat /dev/vcs1 > tty1.log

Better way,

2. setterm -dump 1 -file tty1.log

this will create dump of tty1 in tty1.log. You can simply view it with a text editor.

But for either of these to work, you'll first have to disable clearing of boot messages, as mentioned in the wiki. I use the inittab method.

If you explain the better way a little more - especially where to embed this command - I will update the wiki smile

Well, firstly setterm is present in the util-linux package.

This command can be run from a virtual console, or a terminal emulator as root.

Here's the description of -dump switch from the man page of setterm.

 -dump [1-NR_CONS]
              Writes  a  snapshot of the given virtual console (with attributes) to the file specified in the -file option,
              overwriting its contents; the default is screen.dump.  Without an argument, dumps the  current  virtual  con‐
              sole.  Overrides -append.

By default, if no -file option is specified, the output will be written to screen.dump

Also, take a look at this switch

      -append [1-NR_CONS]
              Like  -dump,  but appends to the snapshot file instead of overwriting it.  Only works if no -dump options are
              given.

Re: Logging boot messages

Thanks, I appreciate that you tried to explain the man page to me but alas, it presumes background knowledge I lack (and I checked it before, trying to be a good archer).

So, happy go lucky as I am I tried the following command:

setterm -dump 1 -file /var/log/boot.log -append

It created a boot.log but the file is empty sad

Well firstly, you'll need to disable clearing of the boot messages (I'm sure, you have already done that). Secondly, the dump and append options don't work together. You can use either of them, and specify the vc number as the argument.

for e.g.

# setterm -append 1 -file /var/log/boot.log

or

# setterm -dump 1 -file /var/log/boot.log

Re: Logging boot messages

Has anyone tried http://projects.archlinux.org/initscrip … 20f39fda48 ?
The goal is to get rid of the control characters from /var/log/boot

#!/bin/bash
sed 's#\^\[#\\033#g' /var/log/boot > 00blog
printf "$(cat 00blog) \n"

was the best I could do.
Neither 'less -r' nor 'less -R' works for me.


For some reason the log ends on network daemon (sorry for the weird formatting)

Re: Logging boot messages

Yeah, how do you view /var/log/boot in all the pretty colours ?


Oh, I see...

#!/bin/bash
sed 's#\^\[#\\033#g' /var/log/boot > 00blog
printf "$(cat 00blog) \n"

(tho the output formatting isn't exactly accurate...)

Anyway, thanks. It helped in Googling a "usr/sbin/alsactl: set_control:1267: failed to obtain info for control #32 (No such file or directory)" [FAIL] error that's been bugging me for months.

Re: Logging boot messages

Using the following commands

# setterm -append 1 -file /var/log/boot.log
or
# setterm -dump 1 -file /var/log/boot.log.

Results in a /var/log/boot.log file containing this:

As you can see, this is only the bottom portion of the messages that scroll by, that are currently showing on tty1. 
If I go to tty1, I can't get the screen  to scroll up to show them all....
Any suggestions on how to see or print to log file all the messages?

Re: Logging boot messages

I'm confused.  On my system, I look in /var/log/boot for the boot messages.  It's cluttered with escape sequences but it's readable.

Bootlogging was implemented in April, 2011.  See https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/18046.

Re: Logging boot messages

@karol,
Thank you for the sed command.

My boot log ends with crond starting.  The abrupt log ending might have to do with backgrounding. 'crond' is the first item in my rc.conf daemons array that is backgrounded.

Re: Logging boot messages

@thisoldman

This is a sample of what's in in my /var/log/boot file.
I see no evidence of the current errors I see when rebooting, but admittedly, it may be there in some form and I just don't recognize it.

I recall setting something, somewhere, to log additional info to this file, so that may also be a factor.

Re: Logging boot messages

/sbin/bootlogd is first called from rc.sysinit, so nothing will be recorded before that point.

I boot into runlevel 3 and I don't clear the boot messages.  I am able to then view all the boot messages using Shift plus PageUp and PageDown, as long as I do this review before I log in.  I can go back all the way to where the kernel finds rtc_cmos.  Logging in on any terminal breaks this ability.

Some queries:
1. What's it with all the ^[[?
2. Mine is considerably shorter... Might be down to the fact that I use e4rat to boot faster.
3. I don't clear my boot messages either but am unable to scroll - reason may be that there is nothing to scroll, they all fit on my screen...

Re: Logging boot messages

Trying to not get too off topic....  I figured out the "errors" I saw scrolling by was in fact just additional info from....

Earlier, I changed VERBOSE in rc.conf from 3 to 4, which I thought would result in additional info to log files. It actually resulted in additional info scrolling by during startup. Restoring VERBOSE to 3 eliminated it. The additional info I refer to was logged to /var/log/kernel.log.



If I boot to runlevel 3, from grub, I can scroll normally and read everything. Booting to runlevel 5 to GDM screen, without logging in, switch to tty1 without logging in there does not allow scrolling.

Any ideas why the command below wouldn't print all the info to file?

 # setterm -dump 1 -file /var/log/boot.log

Some queries:  2. Mine is considerably shorter... Might be down to the fact that I use e4rat to boot faster.

Not sure but I just copied part of the file with the same date. A closer look reveals more that one reboot worth of info.

To eliminate clearing the boot messages, I tried several, and settled on method 1 from the wiki 
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Di … .2Finittab Added the "-i" to c1 line per below.

c1:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -i -8 38400 tty1 linux

I'm confused.  On my system, I look in /var/log/boot for the boot messages.  It's cluttered with escape sequences but it's readable.

Please read https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 53#p940453
For some reason the log on my computer ends sooner than I think it should - do you know why?

Karol, i took a look at my /var/log/boot and even in my case, no entries after network are logged.

here's my daemons section

# DAEMONS
DAEMONS=(syslog-ng dbus network @avahi-daemon @crond @sensors @alsa !atd)

It seems, in my case that the backgrounded daemons aren't being logged.

But in your case, acpi, gpm, and network are backgrounded, along with others, so i don't see a connection.

Re: Logging boot messages

Here what happens on my machine:

My rc.conf daemon stanza:

DAEMONS=(@syslog-ng dbus @network @netfs @alsa @kdm @crond @wicd @hdapsd @gpm @ntpd @acpid @laptop-mode @avahi-daemon)

My last /var/log/boot entries:

Mon Jun 27 21:05:38 2011: ^[[0;10m^[[1m^[[34m:: ^[[0;10m^[[1mStarting network^[[0;10m ^[[201G   ^[[0;10m^[[1m^[[34m[^[[0;10m^[[1m^[[35mBKGD^[[0;10m^[[1m^[[34m]^[[0;10m ^[[0;10m^[[1m^[[34m:: ^[[0;10m^[[1mStarting netfs^[[0;10m ^[[201G   ^[[0;10m^[[1m^[[34m[^[[0;10m^[[1m^[[35mBKGD^[
Mon Jun 27 21:05:38 2011: /dev/sda:
Mon Jun 27 21:05:38 2011:  setting Advanced Power Management level to 0xf4 (244)
Mon Jun 27 21:05:38 2011:  APM_level

But my boot messages on tty1 go through all the daemons. All in all pretty similar to x33a's observations.
