Logging Setup

Before you can use Loggly, you need to configure your logging setup to send your logs to Loggly.

The types of logs that can be uploaded, and the procedures for doing so, are shown in the menu list at the left, under the “Logging Setup” heading. We include setups for common operating systems and applications that maintain logs. The list is alphabetical; scroll to find the procedure that applies to you.

You’ll see code examples and screenshots for configuring each setup, sending test logs, and verifying events. Advanced options and troubleshooting procedures are also provided. To use a code example, you need one or more parameters associated with your logs. These parameters may include your Loggly subdomain, username, and password; your Loggly customer token; your application name and command; etc.

You can upload logs using either syslog (TCP,UDP,TLS) or HTTP/S. Syslog is the most common way. You can also upload logs from a variety of log sources including rsyslog, nxlog, JavaScript, JSON, AWS scripts, Fluentd, Loggly scripts, Docker, and more. In many cases, we have simple scripts available that get your running in one copy & paste command.

To get started, click the setup procedure that applies to you in the menu list at the left. Once you have successfully sent your first logs to your Loggly account, see Using Loggly.

Thanks for the feedback! We'll use it to improve our support documentation.
