       doveadm-log - Locate, test or reopen Dovecot's log files


       doveadm [-Dv] log find [directory]
       doveadm [-Dv] log reopen
       doveadm [-Dv] log test


       The  doveadm log commands are used to locate and reopen the log files of dovecot(1).  It's
       also possible to test the configured targets of the *log_path settings.


       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -v     Enables verbosity, including progress counter.


   log find
       doveadm log find [directory]

       The log find command is used to show the location of the log files,  to  which  dovecot(1)
       sends its log messages.  If dovecot(1) logs its messages through syslogd(8) and doveadm(1)
       could not find any log files, you can specify the directory where your syslogd writes  its
       log files.

   log reopen
       doveadm log reopen

       This  command  causes  doveadm  to  reopen  all  log  files,  configured  in the log_path,
       info_log_path  and  debug_log_path   settings.    These   settings   are   configured   in
       This is for example useful after manually rotating the log files.

   log test
       doveadm log test

       This  command  causes  doveadm  to  write  the  message  "This  is  Dovecot's priority log
       (timestamp)" to the configured log files.  The used priorities are: debug, info,  warning,
       error and fatal.


       This example shows how to locate the log files used by dovecot(1).
