Currently, the following operation logs are provided by MRS. You can filter the logs in the search box.

  • Cluster operations
    • Creating, deleting, scaling out, and scaling in a cluster
    • Creating and deleting a directory, deleting a file
  • Job operations: Creating, stopping, and deleting a job
  • Data operations: IAM user tasks, adding user, and adding user group

Logs are listed in chronological order by default in the log list, with the most recent logs displayed at the top.
