If you have admin privileges you can view the logs from the "MONITOR: SETUP" screen. Specify "node.*.log" for the "Log Name" field and you'll have a view into the log for all the nodes. I'd like to understand the use case where only Node 5 and Node 7 are wanted. How do you know that only those two nodes are of interest? As Xcalar is a distributed system the work is typically spread across all the nodes in the cluster.
