This article is intended to give you an in depth look at all the features of the Log Dashboard. If you have not already downloaded and added a Stackify Log appender or the Stackify API to your app, see the article on Errors and Logs Overview.
In-Line Log Messages
Get a Closer Look at Your Logs
If you hover over a log entry, you will see a document icon on the far left. Click the caret next to the document icon to see the ‘View Related’ option. By selecting this icon, you will be able to see every log message at a closer glance surrounding the line you selected.
You can view more log messages in-depth in either direction.
View Error Details
To get more information on an error you see in the Log Dashboard, click the icon to the right of the error.
This will give you additional data specific to that error. You can find more information on this data in the Error Details article. You also have the option to view the logs around the Error. Just click on the ‘Logs’ tab inside the ‘Error Detail’.
Real Time Tailing
Filter, Search, and View Your Logs
Pinpoint your errors by applying filters and fields to weed out unneeded information. You can isolate the logs that you are looking for by specifying the Environment, Server, or Application. You also can search for terms in your Log messages. To see more information on search syntax, view the article on Querying for Logs.
Adding Tags Your Log Messages
You can “tag” important words or phrases in your log messages using a hashtag(#) symbol as seen above. You will then be able to search by applying filters and fields for these tagged words in the logs and errors dashboards. Below will show you how easy it is to locate a tagged phrase using the dashboard.
You can also select a tag label in the log message to see only those tags.
Log Query Monitors
In addition to saving search terms, you can also set up monitors for saved searches. Set up alerts to be notified whenever a query is matched. To learn more about how this works, visit the Log Queries article.
Applying Different Time Ranges
You can easily view logs over the last hour, 4 hours, day, 7 days, 30 days, or a custom date range.
