Accessing Raw Logs from Nest WiFi Router

Is there an API or other way to access the raw logs from the Nest WiFi router? I'm running a lab on devices in my home, and would like to analyze the network traffic.

Only logs would be the diagnostics report

Hello @Anesu 

As @Ashepherdson mentioned, the diagnostic report contains some log information, but decoding it will require some effort, since it's a protocol buffer format and some of the log files are gzip compressed inside it. That said, you may not find the logs all that useful. There are some logs regarding device connection events, but there is no log of network traffic or DNS requests, for example. Analyzing all network traffic will require something else.
