Sometimes, debug-level logging can be useful. To enable this, make this change in the service file and restart the service.

In this file: /etc/systemd/system/cloudplow.service, change the log level to "DEBUG":

ExecStart=/usr/bin/python3 /opt/cloudplow/ run --loglevel=DEBUG  <<<<< RIGHT THERE
ExecStopPost=/bin/rm -rf /opt/cloudplow/locks

You should only enable debug logging while you need it to track down a problem.
