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, and scroll down to the relevant task in the Tasks field.
  2. Click on the View details icon for the task. A window opens with details of the task.
  3. Select the Logger tab in the task window.

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.
