How to set istio log level?


I am attempting to set the istio log level through the manifest (specifically global.logging.level) and it’s having no impact on the logs produced. I’d like to only log errors/warnings. How do I do this?

edit Note: I checked the pods and nothing is changing – the switch is still setting debug, even when it’s defaulted to default:info.

Did you try ControlZ?

Yeah – and so far I can’t seem to find the culprit. I am trying to turn off debug level logging for the sidecar injector. I’ll try all pods with controlz and see if that helps.

edit I can’t find sidecar injector settings and it seems to be ignoring the global.logging.level setting while some of the pods have that setting.
