@stacksofplates well that was a bust. it only shows errors related to the service itself.journalctl -u haproxy
I need to find connection errors.
Will hit the googles in an hour when I arrive on site.
Ah ok, I didn't realize it doesn't log that automatically ( I don't ever use HAProxy). This may help from https://serverfault.com/questions/647395/haproxy-not-logging-requests
