Write system log on reboot

My wife informed me my HTPC wasn't working last night. However it turns out that unRAID was offline.

I attempted to look at the log file, however it doesn't write when the system goes down. I am currently hoping my toddler just pushed the power button and not some other issue is at play. However the true reason my server was off is unknown to me.

 

What I would like to see is an option to write the system log to either the flash drive or a shared drive before a reboot/power off.

Or if this is already a feature could someone please point me in the correct direction.

 

Thank you

"webgui: Syslog: sort logs"

what i was looking for?  If so, I guess its time to move to the RC

Not really, but there is a 'Syslog Server' built in that can keep the log on a crash, or lockup.  Just enable the 'Syslog Server' and set the ip address of your Unraid server as the 'Remote Syslog Server'.
