Buffer logging: disabled

Console logging is enabled, if you had connected a device to the console port of router, you can view the messages, else they are lost. Buffer is used to capture messages if you are connected through telnet.
Assuming you have turned on logging, type following on the cli

show log

If you haven't then you will need to turn it on before you can see anything by

config term
logging buffer debug

Look into how to use syslog - send your log files to a syslog server.  Word to the wise.
