Mist uses to launch it's own client (geth or eth) in the background.

Does it store the node's logs? If so, where?

1 Answer 1


Yes, it does!

Mist writes logs to a file by default. The log files are rotated and stored in a platform-specific directory.

  • On OS X, the latest log is ~/Library/Application Support/Mist/node.log
  • On Windows, it is C:\Users\<name>\AppData\Roaming\Mist\node.log
  • On Linux, it's ~/.config/Mist/node.log

There is also a button in the Mist menu that opens this folder.
