Users with administrator privileges can download the Plexus Suite log files for the backend and frontend, respectively from the System tab of the Admin Tools dialog window (User account > Admin tools > System).
In order to help administrators in finding the log files, the location of log file directory is included in the standard output of the Plexus Suite backend. This means that the information about where to find the log files is printed
to the console when the executable WAR file is used;
into the catalina.out file in the case of Tomcat (and similarly for other application containers).
