Task Logger

  • Last updated: April 29, 2024

  • Read time: 1 Minute

You can examine traffic generated for a single task. This enables you to investigate a task that behaves unexpectedly, or monitor the progress of a specific task.

To view task-specific log entries:

  1. Go to Dashboard.
  2. Select the relevant tasks from the Tasks list.
  3. In the main panel, go to the Logger tab.

The task-specific Logger functions in a similar way to Burp Logger, with a couple of notable differences:

  • The default memory allocation for each task is only 10MB, or 20MB if you give Burp Suite access to 1GB or more of memory.
  • You cannot capture or filter by tool, as the task-specific Logger only captures and displays traffic from the tool used for the task.
