I know one of you bright folks will be able to point me in the correct direction. I am trying to find the boot log in Sierra. I know they are no longer stored in flat text files. I am looking for the post Clover log (I can see the Clover log in Clover Configurator successfully.) I want to see the log that finds all the drives, the to call DSMOS.text, en0 being assigned, Regents of University CA acknowledged, Bluetooth calls, etc... etc...

I have tried Apple Communities, Google and these forums here doing multiple searches.

I really appreciate the help and thanks in advance...

Open Terminal en type:
Code:
log show --predicate "processID == 0" --debug
You will get all entries. If you only want the entries of today type:
Code:
log show --predicate "processID == 0" --start 2016-11-19 --debug

Awesome dude. I wish someone creates a simple opensource Console alternative. The one in Sierra is useless.

You can open custom log files using Console. So, you can open your customized kernel log file via Console using Terminal:

Today's log:
Code:
log show --predicate "processID == 0" --debug --start  `date "+%Y-%m-%d"` > /tmp/kernel.log && open /tmp/kernel.log
All time log:
Code:
log show --predicate "processID == 0" --debug > /tmp/kernel.log && open /tmp/kernel.log
If you're clever enough and a bit lazy, you can also make a script out of this.
