If enabled, you can take advantage of the power of Stackdriver Logging to diagnose problems with your Velostrata environment. You can also share these logs with Velostrata support to speed up problem resolution.

Each Velostrata deployment has a unique ID, which is reflected in
namespace resource label.
Using the Stackdriver Logging console
The Stackdriver documentation has documentation on how to filter and search from the logging console. The directions below assume your familiarity with this interface.

- Sign in to your Manager
- Click System Settings
- Click the Logs tab

For example, to filter for logs only from your Cloud Extensions, use the text
box at the top of the log list and paste
