Better Log Management with Custom Dashboards
Every cloud-based application has its unique characteristics and potential failure points, and every DevOps professional has his or her own way of doing things. That’s why Loggly lets you create an unlimited number of custom dashboards for specific purposes. Each dashboard is made up of selected trend graphs and visualizations of your saved searches.
Perhaps your ops team wants to see system stability metrics; your development team wants to see application usage; and your marketing team wants to understand key details of new user signups. No problem! Creating custom dashboards is really simple with Loggly.
How To Do It
Step 1: On the Dashboard page, click the button to add a new dashboard.
Step 2: When the “Add New Dashboard” pop-up shows, type in a name for your new dashboard and click “Submit.”
Step 3: Now start adding widgets (a trend graph or saved search). You can choose from any widgets that come with Loggly’s standard summary dashboard or ones that you create from the trends interface. (See my previous post on Trends for more details.) The widgets you create appear under “Custom Widgets.”
