    When you need personalized, expert assistance, the Lucidworks technical support team is available 24/7.

    Before you open a support case, see the instructions below to learn how to gather data that the technical support team can use to evaluate your issue and provide a solution.

    Finding log files in the filesystem

    Log files are located in the https://FUSION_HOST:FUSION_PORT/var/log directory. Generally, the log files below are the most useful in diagnosing an issue:

    • API logs

      https://FUSION_HOST:FUSION_PORT/var/log/api/api.log and https://FUSION_HOST:FUSION_PORT/var/log/api/gc_<timestamp>.log.0.current

    • Connectors logs

      https://FUSION_HOST:FUSION_PORT/var/log/connectors-classic/connectors-classic.log and https://FUSION_HOST:FUSION_PORT/var/log/connectors-rpc/connectors-rpc.log

    If it is apparent that additional components are involved, collect their logs and associated gc logs from the https://FUSION_HOST:FUSION_PORT/var/log directory.
