Logs discovery aims to automate the classification and shipping of your infrastructure and application log files as well as container logs. With a simple control plane at your disposal it's easy to explore and manage discovered log sources across bare-metal/virtual machines and containers.
Contextual log discoveries¶
Each log file is linked to the service that's writing to it. Log file metadata reveals some fundamental attributes of a file, like the disk device where it is located, size, inode number and so on.
Automatic log shipping¶
Setting up log shipping is straightforward and it boils down to selecting your logs destination and optional include/exclude glob matters. This also eliminates tedious tasks that stem from the provisioning of log shippers.
A predefined set of regular expression patterns are automatically applied to a log file making it convenient to get started without additional hassle. Log parsing structures the raw log events into events with meaningful fields out of the box making them suitable for dashboarding and the creation of precise alert rules. Sematext Logs supports a wide array of integrations with prebuilt reports and alert rules.
Include and exclude glob patterns provide fine-grained control over which log files are shipped to Sematext.
