Which log files to check for alerts and notifications?

In Grafana, I’ve an Alert defined with Rule, COnditions and Notifications. For any issues like alert is not being triggered, conditions not met or notification not sent, what are logs files that logs these details to identify what went to wrong?

Basically what are the log files to debug issues?

What operating system are you using and how did you install Grafana?

By default, Grafana logs to stdout (so if you’re running Grafana as a Docker container, it’s docker logs <container> and if you’re running Grafana as a service on Ubuntu/Red Hat/similar installed with our packages for those systems it’s journalctl -u grafana-server.
