Example command to examine the logs:

docker logs -f viseron

Debugging a camera

If one of your cameras is malfunctioning you might need to enable debug logging for it to gain some more insight or raise an issue.

Setting default_level to debug will create a lot of noise. To isolate the logs of a specific camera, use the cameras config option. The following example will enable debug logging for all logs related to the camera with the identifier camera_one.

camera_one: debug
