journalctl

How to see full log from systemctl status service?

journalctl -u service-name.service

Or, to see only log messages for the current boot:

journalctl -u service-name.service -b
  • -u, --unit specifies the name of the unit in which you're interested
  • -b, --boot restricts the output to only the current boot so that you don't see lots of older messages
