Kibana Log file

Very basic question here. I am working on a DEB install of Kibana and I cannot seem to find where the applications log files are kept. I assumed they would be in /var/log/kibana but that does not seem to exist. Any help? Thank you

Reading this:
I think that there should be a logs directory under /usr/share/kibana (default Kibana home).

Thank you for the quick reply. I had looked in there and there does not seem to me to be a clear log location.

OK, so Kibana logs to stdout by default, which depending on how you run it, may actually go to a file or just to stdout, which for a headless process, is effectively nowhere. In kibana.yml, you can configure logging.dest and point to wherever in the filesystem you want your logs to go.


I found some info from sudo tail -n 100 /var/log/syslog and now am looking to figure out why kibana can no longer start.
Thank you for your time!
