To get to an instance console navigate to the instance dashboard by following these steps:
- Click the Environments tab on the navigation menu to the left.
- Select the environment the container instance you want to access is in.
- Click the Containers tab under the environment name.
- Select the container from the list.
- Click the Instances tab under the container name.
- Select the specific instance you want to view from the list.
It's important to know what's happening inside your container, especially when it comes to debugging. The portal has a built in console that shows you the output of your instance (stdout & stderr).
The instance console has a 40KB buffer, so that even if the process dies, you'll be able to have a history of what happened.
