Viewing Error Logs

RDS log management allows you to view database-level logs, including error logs and slow SQL query logs.

Error logs contain warning- and error-level logs generated during the database running. These can help you analyze problems with the database.


  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. Click in the upper left corner and select a region and a project.
  3. Click Service List. Under Database, click Relational Database Service to go to the RDS console.
  4. On the Instance Management page, click the target DB instance.
  5. On the Error Logs page, view log details.

    • You can select a log level in the upper right corner to view logs of the selected level.

      For MySQL DB instances, only error-level logs are displayed currently.

    • You can click in the upper right corner to view error logs in different time segments.
    • If the description of a log is truncated, locate the log and move your pointer over the description in the Description column to view details.
