strongSwan can only be contacted via stroke (ipsec tool) or vici (swanctl tool, any third party lib that uses vici). You are well advised with using vici. stroke will be removed at some point (not determined).
What exactly are you looking for? You can query strongSwan for logs via vici, too, but only for new logs. strongSwan doesn't cache any old ones or old events.

Kind regards

Especially, when there is a certificate error or mismatch, or if ipsec / ike has some other errors? Or is it only possible to get the information by using the vici Plugin, and not directly by strongswan itself?
