AppLogs Pricing and Docker Logs support

by cole

Congratulations on the new release.

Any plans to support Docker log ingestion?

Also what is the pricing for AppLogs, is it per GB?

 

Thanks

Thanks for the compliments, Cole.
 
>>"Any plans to support Docker log ingestion?"
 
The container will send 3 kinds of data types:
  • The docker events (container's lifecycle events such as "create", "kill", "commit", etc....) - supported currently in our docker monitoring
  • The docker stats - supported currently in our docker monitoring
  • The docker logs (data published by running containers to stdout and stderr) - can be achieved using Applog.
 
With the above said docker logs can be ingested using the custom log format support
 
 By default logging driver will be json-file, if this is the logging driver in your case following the below steps should help you in uploading the logs.
 
 
1) Create a docker log type in Site24x7 by giving a sample logs and the log pattern. The log pattern used here is {"log":$msg$,"stream":$stream$,"time":"$DateTime:date:yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ss$$ms$"}
 
configuring log type
 
 
2. Associate this logtype to a log profile. Here you can give the list of files to search as /var/lib/docker/containers/**/*.log and then select the needed docker servers for log monitoring.
 
 
 
3. Once the above steps are done you should see the docker logs in a couple of minutes

The AppLogs feature is available across all our paid plans. The Starter Plan, by itself gives you 500MB of logs every month.
 
You can purchase additional logs as add-ons under Admin >> Subscriptions >> Purchase add-ons on your Site24x7 account. The Applogs add-on is priced as below.
 
Additional 10GB Logs: $10/month
 
We are in plans to support this docker logs in our docker monitoring itself. So that it can be mapped with the containers and image name associated with it.
 
We welcome your feedback. 
 
Cheers,
