Log Explorer

Log Explorer

Overview

The Log Explorer is your home base for log troubleshooting and exploration. Whether you start from scratch, from a Saved View, or land here from any other context like monitor notifications or dashboard widgets, the Log Explorer is designed to iteratively:

Search and filter

Search and Filter on logs to narrow down, broaden, or shift your focus on a subset of logs tailored to your current interest.

Group

Group queried logs into higher-level entities in order to derive or consolidate information. To begin identifying patterns and aggregating logs by subsets of events, see the Group Logs documentation.

Visualize

Visualize the outcome of filters and aggregations to put your logs into the right perspective and bubble up decisive information. For example, view your logs in a list, to organize log data into columns, or in a timeseries, to measure your log data over time. To start visualizing log data in the Log Explorer, see the Create Log Visualizations documentation.

Export

You can also export your Log Explorer view to reuse it later or in different contexts. See the Export Logs documentation.
