Locating Cloudera Data Warehouse Private Cloud logs on HDFS

This topic describes where you can find Cloudera Data Warehouse (CDW) Private Cloud logs on HDFS.

CDW Private Cloud logs are written to a partition on the Hive sys.logs table. These partitions are retained for 7 days by default.

  1. Log in to the OpenShift cluster and determine the location of the sys.logs table on HDFS by running the following query:
    DESCRIBE FORMATTED sys.logs;

    This SQL statement returns information about the location of the table on HDFS.

  2. Use the location obtained in Step 1 to locate the CDW Private Cloud logs in HDFS on the OpenShift cluster.
