condor_fetchlog [-pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber]] [-master -startd -schedd -collector -negotiator -kbdd] machine-name subsystem[.extension]
condor_fetchlog contacts HTCondor running on the machine specified by machine-name, and asks it to return a log file from that machine. Which log file is determined from the subsystem[.extension] argument. The log file is printed to standard output. This command eliminates the need to remotely log in to a machine in order to retrieve a daemon's log file.
For security purposes of authentication and authorization, this command requires ADMINISTRATOR level of access.
The subsystem[.extension] argument is utilized to construct the log file's name. Without an optional .extension, the value of the configuration variable named subsystem_LOG defines the log file's name. When specified, the .extension is appended to this value.
The subsystem argument is any value $(SUBSYSTEM) that has a defined configuration variable of $(SUBSYSTEM)_LOG, or any of
A value for the optional .extension to the subsystem argument is typically one of the three strings:
<X>is substituted with the slot number.
A subsystem argument of STARTD_HISTORY fetches all condor_startd history by concatenating all instances of log files resulting from rotation.

To get the condor_startd daemon's log from a host named execute.example.com from within the current pool:
condor_fetchlog execute.example.com STARTD
This command requested the condor_startd daemon's log from the condor_master. If the condor_master has crashed or is unresponsive, ask another daemon running on that computer to return the log. For example, ask the condor_startd daemon to return the condor_master's log:
condor_fetchlog -startd execute.example.com MASTER
