Tailing logs

You can tail your logs with the tail command.

For example if you have a CloudWatch log group defined:


Then you could get the last 15 minutes of log events with:

touchdown tail application.log -s 15m

And you could stream the logs as they are ingested with:

touchdown tail application.log -f

You can use the following arguments:

--start, -s

The time to start fetching logs from.

--end, -e

The time to fetch logs until.

--follow, -f

Don’t exit. Continue to monitor the log stream for new events.
