This tutorial will show you how to view logs of running and crashed pods in Kubernetes, also the ability to “tail” the log content.
First, find your pod’s name
Discover your pod’s name by running the following command, and picking the desired pod’s name from the list:
kubectl get pods NAME READY STATUS RESTARTS AGE customer-96f4985b5-9h5pp 1/1 Running 7 11d order-569b7f8f55-drd9t 1/1 Running 0 7d
View logs of a running pod
kubectl logs <POD_NAME>
View and tail logs of a running pod
kubectl logs -f <POD_NAME>
View logs of a crashed pod
kubectl logs <POD_NAME> --previous
I hope it helps. Cya!
