Grafana Enterprise Logs

Grafana Enterprise Logs (GEL) is a commercial offering based on the open source project Loki. The commercial offering allows you to deploy a highly-scalable, simple, and reliable logging cluster in your own data center.

GEL features

With GEL, you get access to new features:

  • Instance management: Easily scale from one to hundreds of logging instances (tenants) within a single GEL cluster. Each instance (tenant) provides an isolated, logical separation of the cluster. Operators have full control over the instances (tenants) that are running on their cluster, by either using the built-in API directly or the official GEL plugin.
  • Token-based authentication: Create and manage tokens with configurable access parameters to interact with logging instances (tenants).
  • OSS Loki compatibility: Seamlessly drop a GEL binary into an existing Loki deployment.
  • Label-based access controls (LBAC): Control query access to logs based on label values.
Instances are tenants

Upcoming features

  • Cross-instance (cross-tenant) query capability: Issue a single query that aggregates results across multiple instances (tenants).
