Basically, EXOS switch does not generate any debug level logs.
Any changes in the routing table is logged with debug level, so you will not see them.

To enable log debug mode, below command is needed.

enable log debug-mode[/code]
But still you should add which log component to be logged on ems configuration.
Checking out log counters will lead you what component you'd like to add.
For an example, below is a log counters of RtMgr.WalkInfoAdd on which I think you're intersted.

If you see counters increased here, you can add that component with a CLI command below.

configure log filter DefaultFilter add events RtMgr.WalkInfoAdd [/code]Then you will see some related logs like,
