When I execute ifdown / ifup on a network card and show where are the events logged?


They're stored in /var/log/messages.


Also, if you have systemd as init process, you can run

sudo journalctl -kb --pager-end

and find messages

  • Depending on the system and what groups the current user is a member of (adm, systemd-journal or wheel), sudo may not be needed. Sep 25 '19 at 10:32
