Log Files

User Guide (Latest)

NVIDIA AI Workbench creates log files that you can use to debug issues, and to understand the state of your applications. There are log files for the AI Workbench desktop application, service, CLI, and for applications that you use with AI Workbench, such as JupyterLab. Some log file content appears in the desktop application so that you can monitor your projects while they are running.

Use this documentation to perform the following tasks:

To access server and app log files from the AI Workbench desktop application, do the following:

  1. In the status bar, click Output. The output pane opens.

  2. In the drop-down, select Service or the name of an app, such as JupyterLab. The log file appears in the output pane.

For local locations, all log files are on the local computer. For remote locations, the server and app log files are on the remote computer, and the desktop application and CLI log files are on your local machine.

To access log files manually, find them in the following locations.

Desktop application log files C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\NVIDIA Corporation\AI Workbench\logs\main.log
Server log files /home/workbench/.nvwb/logs/workbench.log
CLI log files /home/workbench/.nvwb/logs/nvwb.log
Application log files /home/workbench/.nvwb/project-runtime-info/<project-name-and-hash>/<app name>_start.log
Important

On Windows, to access the server, CLI, and application log files, use WSL. Open the WSL app by searching for WSL in your app list, or by entering wsl -d NVIDIA-Workbench in a command window.

Desktop application log files /home/<username>/.config/NVIDIA/AI Workbench/main.log
Server log files /home/<username>/.nvwb/logs/workbench.log
CLI log files /home/<username>/.nvwb/logs/nvwb.log
Application log files /home/<username>/.nvwb/project-runtime-info/<project-name-and-hash>/<app name>_start.log
Important

For remote locations, SSH into the computer to view the log files.

Desktop application log files /Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/NVIDIA/AI Workbench/logs/main.log
Server log files /Users/<username>/.nvwb/logs/workbench.log
CLI log files /Users/<username>/.nvwb/logs/nvwb.log
Application log files /Users/<username>/.nvwb/project-runtime-info/<project-name-and-hash>/<app name>_start.log

In some cases, you might need to create a support bundle. A support bundle is a zip file that contains log files, configuration information, and system state for your AI Workbench installation. We attempt to automatically exclude sensitive or identifiable information. However, always review the contents of a support bundle before you share it with anyone.

You always create a support bundle for your local location. If the currently active location is a remote location, or if you specify a remote location when you create the support bundle, a support bundle is created for the remote location first, and included in the support bundle for your local location.

Use the following procedure to create a support bundle.

  1. Access the AI Workbench CLI. For instructions, see Basic Quickstart (CLI).

  2. Run the following command.

    Copy
    Copied!
                

    nvwb support create-bundle — or — nvwb support create-bundle --context <location name>

    When the command completes, the message Support bundle created appears with the location of the file.

  3. Find the support bundle file in the following location.

    ~/.nvwb/ai-workbench-support-bundle.zip

    ~/.nvwb/ai-workbench-support-bundle.zip

    — or —

    ~/.nvwb/remote-ai-workbench-support-bundle.zip

    ~/.nvwb/ai-workbench-support-bundle.zip
