Description

Do you use logs to observe your applications? Are you trying to use logs to monitor applications that don’t have metrics? Logs are an invaluable insight into the health and operations of your applications, but we all struggle at times to manage the scale and complexity of your application logs. There is good news, however, because Grafana can help!

Join us for a three-part session to learn how you can utilize, manage, and visualize log events with Grafana and Grafana’s logging application Loki. We’ll also show you how to apply our new Grafana Cloud Alerting to your Loki logs. Finally, we’ll showcase a few log data source plugins so you can up-level your organization’s logging strategy.

Some areas of focus:

  • New Loki features: significant improvements to the LogQL query language, generate alerts directly from logs, and new operational capabilities.
  • How to create Prometheus-style alerts for Loki logs
  • How to leverage existing investments in logging solutions such as Splunk to create enterprise-ready dashboards in Grafana.

We are working on recovering the Q&A portion of this session, check back for updates.
