STEP 1

Create a Logz.io account
and send your monitoring
and/or security data

Creating a Logz.io account spins up a scalable, Logz.io-managed cluster and data pipeline in seconds. Using the following methods, send your data to Logz.io’s SaaS platform for storage and analysis:

  • Integrate open source data collection technologies with Logz.io, like Filebeat (no longer OSS), FluentBit, and Fluentd for logs; Prometheus and Telegraph for metrics; and OpenTelemetry for traces.
  • Configure integrations with AWS, Azure, or GCP to stream data to Logz.io directly from cloud infrastructure.
  • Add code to send data straight from your applications.
STEP 2

Parse your log and security
event data

There are three ways to parse your log data and security event data with Logz.io:

  • Automatic parsing: Click here to see whether your log data or security event data can be automatically parsed by Logz.io.
  • Parsing-as-a-service: Our Support Team will parse your logs for you at any time of day. Simply reach out through the bottom right chatbot within the app to get your logs parsed.
  • DIY parsing: Click here to learn how to get started with Logz.io’s self-service parsing tool.

STEP 3

Create dedicated
workspaces for each
team (optional)

Once your data is in Logz.io, segregate it into separate Logz.io Sub Accounts and assign user permissions to each account – all from a single location. This ensures every team only accesses the data relevant to them to drive autonomy and compliance.

Easily monitor data volumes across teams to find opportunities for cost reduction. Set caps to prevent bursty data from running up your bill.

STEP 4

Eliminate noisy data and
optimize storage to reduce
costs (optional)

Logz.io’s Data Optimization Manager makes it easy to remove noisy data that needlessly drives up costs and complicates troubleshooting. Use Logz.io self-service tools or direct support from our engineers to help identify and remove noisy data through the chat bot in the app.

For the data you do want to keep, optimize storage to further reduce costs with Smart Tiering, which provides different tiers to store data depending on its age and value. Learn how to implement Smart Tiering here.
