Enabling channel encoder logs - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Enabling channel encoder logs

You enable channel encoder logs for an individual channel on the MediaLive console. You enable logging and set the logging level (error, warning, info, or debug) on a per channel basis. The channel must be idle in order to enable or disable logging.

You don't need to enable as-run logs. MediaLive always produces these logs.

To enable a channel encoder log (MediaLive console)

  1. If you are a returning user of MediaLive, check with your administrator that your deployment has been set up in AWS IAM to support channel logs.

  2. Your administrator might instruct you to update the MediaLiveAccessRole permission in one of the channels. If you are given this instruction, you must edit a channel (choose any idle channel), display the Channel and input details page, and choose the Update button. When the role is updated in one channel, the change applies to all channels.

  3. To enable encoder logs in a new channel, set up logging during creation.

    To enable encoder logs in an existing channel, edit the channel; this channel must be idle.

    In both cases, on the General settings page, in the Channel logging section, choose Logging. Choose a level other than DISABLED. For more information, see Logging.

  4. You or an administrator can also go into CloudWatch Logs and set an expiry date for the logs.

Disabling channel encoder logs

You disable the capture of encoder-related logging information for an individual channel on the MediaLive console. Edit the channel, and on the General settings page, on the Channel logging section, choose Logging. Set the level to DISABLED.
