Session Logging Session Logging

Session Logging

Dmitry Babinsky Dmitry Babinsky

Saving your sessions' terminal output allows for debugging and analysis at a later stage. In Termius, it's possible to achieve this via the session logging functionality.

Note: Session logging is currently available in the desktop Termius app only.

View session logs

  1. To view a log of a session, in the left-hand panel, open the history item associated with that session.
  2. Click the Open session log button.ezgif-4-8aa3ddf299.gif

How Termius stores session logs

  • Termius saves the output of every SSH and Telnet session you establish.
  • Session logs are saved in history items. Removing a history item removes the corresponding session log.
  • Sessions logs are stored only locally, i.e. not synchronized across devices.
  • Log files are encrypted with the xchacha20poly1305 algorithm.
  • For each of your hosts and for connections established without using a host entry, Termius stores not more than 5 most recent session logs.

    Glad to see that the session logging feature is on beta. But it would be better if the logging can be found in a external text file so that there won't be a limit for 5 recent files and text files is more easy to manage.

    Really happy to see this feature added!  I agree it would be nice to have the log text files accessible outside if Termius.  If I want to share the session logs, I still have to copy/paste as I do now.  I also noticed if I type "clear" in my ssh session I lose all previous session data.  Clear should refresh the screen but not remove the previous session data.

    I saw the text log file in the termius folder, so it would be nice to remove the 5 logs limitation, and it would be nice to let the user to set the location of the log file.

    An export option would be nice to have here for uploading to our external ticketing systems.

    It would be nice to automatically spool the log in a text file like other ssh tools

    I'm using the 7.53 and I don't have this option. What am I doing wrong?

    maybe an idea would be to do something similar to what you have today in securecrt, I think it's perfect because I don't worry about copying logs manually, I access several servers during the day and at the end of the day I have everything automatically organized in text files to attach to my work control.

    Will be good if user can define the session logs file for each session or host and store it in user defined location will be more helpful.

    The company I work for requires that all logs be saved in backup files. I would like to know if there is any way to save these logs in external files, as well as mRemote does, saving in .txt files.

    I'm afraid I won't be able to continue using Termius due to this limitation.

    Termius has become a very good tool for those who work with servers, but the lack of external log management in TXT format for those who work with customer support on network equipment who need to archive these logs in tickets makes it inefficient, the SecureCRT system has a fantastic Logs system.

    for some time I see that people have been demanding a more efficient log system for Termius and without any response from Termius about it :/

    I am using Termius from long. it is awesome .

    it will be better if we have logging option to save in local for the console. so that we can use / share the errors logs or troubleshooting purpose . also it will be helpful for tacking the team execution.

    It's been a year since I had a discussion with the developer regarding this feature, and there seems no progress. All other tools like putty, xshell, mobaxterm have this basic feature, but termius seems no interest in storing the log locally.
