Does/can the standard Disk Utility in OS X (El Capitan) log the "First Aid" disk check results in text file?

Copy paste does not work on this control and to record the whole log I had to take 22 screenshots.

Or maybe there is a CLI counterpart to this check?

    Have you been able to find a log file? Per this 2010 answer on SuperUser there was a log file in ~/Library/Logs/DiskUtility.log but I can find nothing with macOS 10.12.5 (using the Finder's search, spotlight or sudo find / -name "DiskUtility.log"

The CLI counterpart would be diskutil repairVolume /Volumes/MyPassport.
