Error Log view
There is an Error Log view (main menu Window->Show View->Error Log) which contains all errors which occur during the DBeaver runtime.
You can double click on the warning/error in the log viewer and see the error stacktrace. Please attach it to the bug report.
Also, you can open the full log (all error messages) if you need:
DBeaver writes different log files. Most of them are Eclipse logs.
Log files usually reside in the workspace/workspace6/.metadata .
- In Windows open Explorer and paste path
- In Linux just type
- In MacOS open path
- To view hidden folders press Cmd+Shift+. in the folder view.
Two standard log files:
- workspace/workspace6/.metadata/.log - all warnings and errors which happen during normal work
- workspace/workspace6/.metadata/dbeaver-debug.log - the same as
.logplus debug information
In special cases log files can be written in other directories. A special case is an emergency situation when DBeaver cannot start and there is no workspace. Two typical places to find emergency logs:
If you are reporting an error, please attach the applicable part of the log - not the complete file.
Logs are very useful. Many errors cannot be reproduced and fixed without a full error stacktrace (all the details).
Java fatal logs
On the rare occasion that the DBeaver process dies, it does not leave any valuable logs. This is caused by a Java VM crash.
JVM creates a fatal log file for each crash (log gile
hs_err_PID.log). This log usually resides in the same directory where the DBeaver launcher is (e.g. dbeaver.exe).
But in some cases it is a write-protected directory and the log file will be created in other folder.
