Notebook Logs

Logs are retrieved from Jupyter Pod since Notebook spawning to Notebook end. The logs can be viewed from Logs tab and be downloaded as a file as long as Notebook is alive. Once Notebook is terminated, logs are gone with it. In this case, we can only check latest logs cached by UI.

Logs are shown when Notebook pod is being started or alive. If there is no running notebook, it shows Error: cannot get log due to pods "jupyter-xxxx" not found.


Click Shutdown Server. It takes a short while to stop it.


If switching the current working group after the Notebook is launched, it indicates the Notebook is retained in the other group.
