Hello, I'd like to create some log files and I've seen that staff show a proccess in which I've to use a pc. My pc is kinda slow though and setting everything up may take a while. I'd like to be quicker and I've seen logcat extreme app has a nice ui (probably most popular log creating app). The issue is that it has too many options. What priority level should I chose? What about occurence time or logcat buffer? Which logcat format should I chose? Should I filter the log by the service/app name to have a more specific log? Should I use the per app logcat? What about dmesg? I'd like to make a proper log file without a pc that will ~be the identical to an adb log.

I'm giving screenshots of the app below.


Btw, what does "get issue related logs" do? Is it sending the logs to xiaomi? Does it contain the log the developers want? It warns me that xiaomi may collect those data, so I kinda avoid it..

Update: After finding the default values in logcat with adb from google's site, I think I'm gonna leave it to these values:

Priority level: info (I'be seen in developer options that it also is at info)
Occurence time: all buffered data (~unless I set it to record before I go back to the app)
Logcat buffer: main
Logcat format: thread time

Still wondering though if I should do a "per -app" log or a "full" log... The adb command probably does a "full" by default...

Thought to mention that logs taken not with ADB logcat are usually formatted differently, so are difficult to read, and are often incomplete, missing entries from early boot stage, etc. When I see a log like that - instantly ignored. We just don't have time for subpar logs.

I see :emoji_thumbsup:. (Maybe I'll try to create an adb log and a logcat extreme log and try to make it put out ~completely the same log.)
