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