Loki is a horizontally scalable, highly available, multi-tenant log aggregation system inspired by Prometheus. It is designed to be very cost effective and easy to operate. It does not index the contents of the logs, but rather a set of labels for each log stream.
The Loki project was started at Grafana Labs in 2018 and announced at KubeCon Seattle. Loki, which is released under the Apache 2.0 License, reached GA with v1.0.0 in November 2019.
