Using Loggly

As soon as your add-on is enabled. Our beavers will do the rest of the work of setting up the forwarding of your logs. Your log data will be accessible through our web interface. You’ll have both a dashboard view of your logs & access to the log data itself through the Loggly Shell. Now you’ll be able to start searching through your logs in no time.

Before you dive into searching, graphing, and comparing your data. Here are a few things that you’ll want to check out.

Loggly Dashboard

The Loggly dashboard will give you an overview of your log history. Every logged event is graphed to give you an idea of how busy your application is. See a spike where something looks off? Click on the graph and dive right into what happened.

Access the dashboard by navigating to the add-on list of your application in the Heroku apps web interface, or use this shortcut:

$ heroku addons:open loggly

The graph is fully interactive. Try clicking on any of the bars in order to see more info about that specific time frame. It’s also possible to pull your pointer over multiple bars to zoom in on the data set.

Loggly Shell

The Loggly command line interface accepts a number of commands that will slice and dice your data to surface exactly what you need to see. You can always type “help” at the command line to see a list of available commands or visit our documentation.

Setup Archiving

Keep your logs for historical analysis, compliance, or whatever makes you happy. Check out the instructions for using our S3 archiving feature.
