@cloudway I'm not sure I understand your request, but Mapreduce jobs automatically create their own logs and you can find them by browsing to your JobTracker's Web UI and clicking on the job itself.  On the job page, there will be a link to the logs.  You can also click down into any particular task of that job and see it's sdtout/stderr logs in the JT web UI.  By default, the JT keeps the logs around for about 24 hours and then archives them to a "job history" location.  They are eventually deleted from there too.


Does that answer your question?
