Product Updates

March Product Update

It’s time for another product update! We’ve been working furiously for the past month to crank out new features.

Terminology change

First and foremost, we’ve made a major terminology change. The All Hosts filter has been renamed to All Sources. This allows us to account for a wide variety log sources, and as we transition, other references to ‘host’ will be changed to ‘source’. But don’t worry, the Hosts section of the All Sources filter will remain intact.

Filter Menu Overhaul

Internally dubbed “Mega Menu”, this is a feature we’re very excited to have released. The All Sources and All Apps menus now feature a unified search bar that will display results categorized by type. No more hunting for the correct search bar category within each filter menu.

Dashboard

By popular request, we’ve added a dashboard that shows your daily log data usage in a pretty graph as well as a breakdown of your top log sources and apps. You can access the dashboard at the top of the Views section.

Ingestion controls

If you find a source that is sending way too many logs, you can nip it in the bud by using the new Manage Ingestion page. Create exclusion rules to prevent errant logs from being stored. We also provide the option to preserve lines for live tail and alerting even though those lines are not stored.

Comparison operators

For you power users out there, we’ve added field search comparison operators for indexed numerical values. This means you search for a range of values for your indexed fields. For example:

response:>=400

This will return all log lines with the indexed field ‘response’ that have values greater than or equal to 400. More information on comparison operators is available in our search guide.

Integrations

We’ve added PagerDuty and OpsGenie integrations for alert channels, so you can now receive LogDNA alert notifications on these platforms.

On the ingestion side, we’ve added an integration for Flynn. You can send us your logs from your Flynn applications by following these instructions.

Archiving

To open up archiving to more of our users, we’ve added Azure Blob storage and OpenStack Swift archiving options. You can access your archiving settings here.

Other improvements

  • Share this line – Use the context menu to share a private link to the set of lines you’re looking at or share a single line via a secret gist.
  • Search shortcut – Access the search box faster by hitting the ‘/’ key.
  • Switch Account – Open multiple tabs logged into different organizations using the Open in New Viewer option under Switch accounts.

That sums up our product update. If you have any questions or feedback, let us know. Keep calm and log on!
