Displaying past logs

All logs are saved in a database on the walt server. You may retrieve them by using:

$ walt log show --history <range> [other_options...]

The <range> may be either full, none, or have the form [<start>]:[<end>]. Omitting <start> means the range has no limit in the past. Omitting <end> means logs up to now should match. Thus the range : is equivalent to using the keyword full.

If specified, <start> and <end> boundaries must be either:

  • a relative offset to the current time, in the form -<num><unit>, such as -40s, -5m, -1h, -10d (resp. seconds, minutes, hours and days).

  • the name of a checkpoint (see walt help show log-checkpoint)
