When your domain fails to be accelerated or is under attack, you can analyze logs to troubleshoot issues. You can view operation logs for all domains under the current account and download them to your local computer. This topic describes the log format and how to use and query logs.

Background information

How to use logs:
  • The latency to ingest log data to the console is four hours. You can query the generated log files of the last four hours in the Logs module.
  • Log files are generated once every hour. The number of log files generated for each hour is based on the amount of log data generated during that hour.
  • A log file is named in the format of AcceleratedDomain_Year_Month_Date_StartTime_EndTime. Example: www.test.com_2019_12_02_010000_020000.gz
