Before understanding what logs monitoring is, here's a list of important logs monitoring topics for easy navigation.

What is Atatus Logs Monitoring?

With Atatus Log Monitoring, you can collect logs from your log files, servers, applications, networks, and security devices. A particular log message can be detected with ease and you can monitor multiple log files in multiple hosts.

To enable Log Monitoring for your applications, You should install the Atatus Infrastructure agent and enable the logs_enabled flag in your configuration file. You don’t have to copy or export log files since the agent is auto instrumented for capturing logs.

# /etc/atatus-infra-agent/atatus.yml

# General
license_key: "lic_infra_testkey"

# Sets log level. The default log level is info.
# Available log levels are: error, warning, info, verbose
log_level: warning

# The tags of the shipper are included in their own field with each transaction published.
# eg: ["aws-eu", "web-tier"]
tags: []

# Optional fields that you can specify to add additional information to the output.
#  env: production

Collecting logs is disabled by default in the Atatus Infra Agent, enable it in your /etc/atatus-infra-agent/atatus.yaml file.
