Log apps connections
Vallum offers two kinds of logging:
- visually enriched in-app recent apps connections logs
- text based log files
Each user on the Mac has its own Vallum log file stored in /Users/username/Library/Logs/vallum.log.
To display recent logs select the corresponding button in main Vallum toolbar. The Recent Apps Connections Logs view displays only recent logs. Entries in this view will expire. Open Vallum Preferences -> Logging to set expire time. Double click a log entry to display a popup view with log details and some more option (not available in macOS 10.9)
Logs can also be stored to file. To enable this option open Vallum Preferences -> Logging and check “Log to file”.
Log file is stored in user’s home directory’s library at ~/Library/Logs/vallum.log
Log file can be viewed and searched using macOS Console.app. This can be done directly from Vallum menulet -> Quick Actions -> Open Vallum Logs In Console..
