Stacks in

Depending on your current plan, you can locate your Stack under any of the following options within your dashboard; ‘Logs Management’, ‘Infrastructure Metrics’, and ‘Application Performance Monitoring (APM)’. Once you have selected an option, you can view your entire stack for each of the headings. It’s not uncommon that during monitoring you can experience fluctuations in the data you process. A typical example of this is a surge in traffic. Below is an example of a Logs Management stack in

Working with your stack in for resizing

If you are experiencing fluctuations in the amount of data that you are processing there are two options available to you. Firstly, if you are experiencing increased traffic that will have only a short-term impact and will resort to its usual state in a short amount of time. Then you don’t have to do anything, all of’s Stacks will automatically scale up or down to accommodate the change in data and once this period has passed, your Stack will resize to the original size. This ensures that no data is lost.

Your other option is to increase the limits and/or retention period of your Stack. This is a good option if your organization is growing fairly quickly and you believe this increase in data will remain increasing. If you believe this applies to you, you can update your Stack subscription from your account to increase your retention and data ingestion limits.
