The platform provides real-time log analysis, powerful search capabilities, custom dashboards, and alerts for issues and anomalies. We have created a step by step tutorial to enable you to access the search page within platform and navigate to your Logs. It also demonstrates how to use the search bar to filter and refine search results, making it easier to find specific logs.

  1. Click 'Launch Logs' from your dashboard

  2. From here, you have powerful search and filtering options that allow you to quickly analyse your data. You can choose from the date selector to drill down as required.
    To look at the raw log data, choose 'Discover' in the left hand menu. Your data can be stored in different indexes, to view the sample log data, choose the sample data index pattern.

  3. You can see the timeline across the top of the screen, the stack is receiving the sample log data, so you can now filter making it easier and faster to find what you need. You can do this by dragging the cursor across the timeline at the top of the screen to drill down into a specific time period.

  4. You can also expand each individual log so you can look deeper into the raw data.

  5. You can make the view more useful and manageable by selecting just the fields of data you want to see in the main view using the icons on the left.
