Best way to watch cluster deploys

We’re just getting started exploring Rancher, coming from Openshift Origin 3.x.

We’re trying to do a custom node install onto several VMWare VMs. One of the issues we’re seeing in the deployment process is that the log only shows one line at a time, and it’s very difficult to know if we are waiting for a resource to come online, or if it has failed.

Is there a specific log file that we can tail when doing deploys, so we can see what is happening, or the current status?

How are you watching your cluster builds?

Thank you.
