Actually all VM logs are stored on the virtualization hosts. Especially for larger deployments I think it is a good idea to store the VM logs in DB so that you can see the complete history. Now I can only see the last logs when having done a live-migration for example.

There is also a log file per VM stored at the front-end. The information in hosts should be the hypervisor related logs (i.e. qemu log files). I'm not sure if I fully understand this, are you referring to the KVM files to be stored at OpenNebula DB?

Ah Ruben, sorry.

I meant the logfiles stored on the sunstone servers. If you have a HA deployment with the new RAFT algorithm the logs are stored on the current leader. If the leader changes the logfiles are not accessible from the new leader - there is some part missing which is stored on the old leader. I think it would be nice to save the logfiles on die database so they are accessible from all sunstone host.
