Monitor progress with logs

Once the bridge starts running, you can view the G Suite Migrate logs. You can filter the information in a log to get detailed data, such as specific types of warnings or failures. If you identify any issues with data in the logs, troubleshoot the issues before you run another bridge.

Types of logs

To check the detailed data for each transaction, point to the transaction and click Details Details. To download the log, click Download Download.

Migration summary log

You can review a high-level overview of the content migrated in the bridge execution using the Migration summary log. You’ll see the total number of transactions processed.

Partition log

Use the Partition log to see the partitions that were created and run for the bridge.

Execution log

You can identify any operational errors in the Execution log. The log contains a record of each step that’s required to run the bridge. You’ll see a list of the status of each operational component in the migration process.

Transaction log

It might take some time for the Transaction log to fully load. You can review details about each object processed during the bridge. You’ll see each object within the migration scope.

Execution history log

You can use the Execution history log to see every log for every bridge that’s run. You can also see a record of every occasion that the bridge ran as a full or delta migration. To see each log in the Execution history log, point to the record of the bridge, click More More and then select the log.
