Enable Debugging Logs

Required User Role: Administrator

You can enable debugging to generate logs for troubleshooting with Tenable Support.

To enable debugging:

  1. Log in to Tenable Security Center via the user interface.

  2. In the left navigation, click System > Diagnostics.

    The Diagnostics page appears.

  3. In the Debugging Logs section, select one or more debugging logs Tenable Support asked you to enable.

  4. Click Save Debug Settings.

    Tenable Security Center enables the debugging logs you selected and saves the corresponding log files to /opt/sc/admin/logs.

What to do next:

  • Download the debugging logs, as described in Download Debugging Logs.

  • Share the debugging log files with Tenable Support.

  • Disable any unneeded debugging logs, as described in Disable Debugging Logs.

    Note: Tenable does not recommend leaving debugging enabled on Tenable Security Center after you send the log files to Tenable Support. You may experience performance and storage issues if you leave debugging enabled for extended periods of time.

    Note: Collected debug logs contained in the debug archive are automatically deleted during the scheduled nightly cleanup.
