NAME

       i3-dump-log - dumps the i3 SHM log

SYNOPSIS

       i3-dump-log [-s <socketpath>] [-f]

DESCRIPTION

       Debug versions of i3 automatically use 1% of your RAM (but 25 MiB max) to store full debug
       log output. This is extremely helpful for bugreports and figuring out what is going on,
       without permanently logging to a file.

       With i3-dump-log, you can dump the SHM log to stdout.

       The -f flag works like tail -f, i.e. the process does not terminate after dumping the log,
       but prints new lines as they appear.

EXAMPLE

       i3-dump-log | gzip -9 > /tmp/i3-log.gz
