Why do I need to ingest logs?¶
Logging allows you to monitor logs from any location alongside your existing FusionReactor data. With log data readily available, you can resolve issues more quickly and efficiently, which can improve your overall application performance and reduce downtime.
Log monitoring provides a number of benefits, including:
Improved application performance
Early detection of errors and failures
Improved troubleshooting and root cause analysis
Better understanding of application behavior
To send logs, you can use a logging client such as Promtail, Fluentbit, Logback, Fluentd or some other alternative.
Initially Log Monitoring will be a free feature in the FusionReactor Cloud. This free period will run for around 2 - 3 months, allowing you to ingest 50GB of log data per month.
Begin by simply upgrading to FusionReactor 9.0.0 or later and logs will ingest into your Cloud account automatically.
The FusionReactor Agent will send application and error logs out of the box, with options to send traditional FusionReactor logs and scrape any additional logs on the server automatically.
Step 1: Generate an API key.
Step 2: Configure a log shipper
