Help needed understanding logs

Hi all,

Take a look at this temp folder, I’ve blanked out all the other logs so there’s no confusion.

kodi.old.log has a timestamp of 21:09 on 23rd.

The crash log is dated 21.50 on 23rd

kodi.log first entry is at 21:50 on 23rd

So, it looks like there was a crash on the 23rd at 21:50, so why is the timestamp on kodi.old.log 21:09 on the 23rd?



Kodi records a process and error log at all times, but this may not be sufficent and more detail is required. The Debug Log records additional data that may assist in resolving issues experienced by the user.

The Kodi logs are Session Logs. The logs are written from Kodi startup to Kodi shutdown (or crash). The next time you start Kodi, the existing kodi.log is renamed Kodi.old.log and a new kodi.log is created for this new session. In effect you only ever have two logs available- the current one, and the previous one.
