log-path or not

I like to have several logs per ansible run. You can define a log_path in the Configuration file. It’s static and when several users run several playbooks or Ad-Hoc Commands you will have mixed entries in the log.

one log per ansible run

The command below allows me to have one file per ansible run.

ANSIBLE_LOG_PATH=/tmp/ansible_log_$(date +%Y_%m_%d-%H_%M) \
ansible-playbook -vvv your-playbook.yml

In the ansible documentation are more information about Enabling Networking logging and how to read the logfile
