Viewing old chat/console messages?

Is there any way to view old chat/console messages? For example, if I walk away while crafting a massive amount of stuff, is there a way that I can catch up on what happened? Ideally, it would be something that is saved to a file on my computer so that I can read it even if the game crashes. I don’t own the server, so it would need to be a solution on my machine.

Event if the file would get large…or is very noisy (like if I had to start rust in “debug” mode or something like that) that would be fine.

Thanks,

Steve
