Introducing AppSignal Logging

We're excited to announce AppSignal Logging, a straightforward log management solution for ingesting and analyzing your logs.

AppSignal is designed to be intuitive and help you get the most out of your application's monitoring data. Here's what you'll get with our logging solution:

  • A 360-degree view of your application data.
  • An intuitive interface that's easy to navigate.
  • A clean approach to connecting errors to logs and vice versa.

Easily Find the Logs You Need

Easily search and filter your logs without the need to master a new query language. You can filter logs by source, severity, hostname, group, and message. To find what you need even more easily, you can define queryable custom log attributes and organize your logs in a way that makes sense for your application.

Visualize Log Severity

In our charts, you can visualize logging severity over time and detect patterns in logging volume and severity. You can dive deep into your application's logs using the interactive chart. AppSignal will transport you to the relevant timestamp in your logs with just one click.

Personalize Your Log Views

With AppSignal Log Management, there's no need to memorize queries for debugging a specific issue. Create custom views of your logs using filters and organize them in a way that makes sense for your application.

You'll Never Log Alone

Share a deep link with fellow debuggers or get a JSON copy of your logs with a click of a button. No more panicking and no more parsing.

Analyze Your Logs with Ease

When reviewing an error incident in AppSignal, you can use the Time Detective feature to quickly access your application's logs from when the error occurred, giving you a complete picture of how your application was behaving at that time. Alongside logs, Time Detective allows you to review your application's performance incidents, alerts, host usage, and error incidents, so you can identify the root cause of an issue.

AppSignal Ingests Your Logs Seamlessly

AppSignal ingests your application's logs at the speed of light, and you can point your logs to us through our API. For this feature, we've partnered with several popular platforms, such as Scalingo, that can help you to deploy your application with confidence.

We also allow you to ingest logs from your code regardless of your hosting choices.

AppSignal, the Developer-driven APM

Our customers say that AppSignal is a joy to work with. Here are a few reasons why developers love our monitoring:

  • An intuitive interface that can be used with confidence.
  • Automatically generated performance dashboards of the most important tools in your stack.
  • Simple and predictable pricing.
  • Developer-to-developer support.

If you are a new trial user, you can also get a free box of stroopwafels. Once you start pushing some data, reach out to us, and we'll send a package to you 🍪!
