How to view Recent Log Messages in Drupal 7
One of the features that is built into Drupal 7 is various reports. One of the reports in Drupal 7 that you may find handy is the recent log messages. The recent log messages report contains various events that have occured within your Drupal site that have been logged. These may include actions taken by the cron, content changes, system messages, and much more. Accessing the recent log messages report is done through your Drupal admin dashboard. Since the log file may be quite large you may want to filter the results to find specific log messages.
- Log into the Drupal admin dashboard
- Go to Reports
- Click on Recent Log Messages
Filtering the Logs
One of the features you may find useful, since your log file may be quite large, is the ability to filter the log file by the type of log entry.

This option is standard in Drupal 7 so I am unsure as to why you are not seeing it. Could you provide the specific version of Drupal that you are running?
