    Logging: Enabling/Disabling for a Bucket

    • PDF

    Article summary

    When bucket logging is enabled, a text log file will be maintained of all access to the bucket. This provides details about the types of access requests made, request resources, and the date/time of processed requests. You can enable bucket logging:

    • While creating a bucket, as described in Bucket Logging
    • After a bucket has been created (that is, for an existing bucket displayed in the Buckets list), as described below
    Use logging cautiously because when logging is enabled, all log files are saved. This means the costs could be high, eventually, as log files are stored. For additional information, refer to: wasabi.com/pricing
