Log files track and record your site's activity to help you find, debug, and isolate current or potential problems on your site. Each environment (Multidev, Dev, Test, and Live) has individual log files, which can be obtained via SFTP. Application-level logs can be accessed directly through Drupal. You can use New Relic® Performance Monitoring in conjunction with logs to help diagnose and fix errors and performance bottlenecks.
The server timezone and log timestamps are in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).
Log files are destroyed during appserver migration (a standard part of regular platform maintenance). Log deletion occurs because the log files are appserver-specific. Consider automating the collection of logs regularly to maintain historical log data.
Fastly on Pantheon provides additional features if you are looking for log or media storage integration solutions.
