Status >> System Log menu entry.
System Log page in LuCi does not have an interface for filtering
output. Therefore, you will likely want to use the shell interface.
Once logged in via SSH, use the
Usage: logread [options] Options: -s <path> Path to ubus socket -l <count> Got only the last 'count' messages -e <pattern> Filter messages with a regexp -r <server> <port> Stream message to a server -F <file> Log file -S <bytes> Log size -p <file> PID file -h <hostname> Add hostname to the message -P <prefix> Prefix custom text to streamed messages -f Follow log messages -u Use UDP as the protocol -t Add an extra timestamp -0 Use \0 instead of \n as trailer when using TCP

One should be able to use
logread -e instead of
grep, but it seems
that not all the same regular expressions work for both:
root@libreCMC:~$ logread -e 'kern\.warn' # and other similar variations (no output)
The system log is contained in a limited size, circular buffer in memory. So, if you have some process writing messages periodically, this will eventually erase messages that were only written once.
