This article explains how to use our log upload utility. We developed this handy web application to enable new customers to test out Scalyr's features with their log data and minimal configuration.
Please note that this application was designed to quickly demonstrate Scalyr's functionality to new customers by using their log data.
There are 3 production-ready methods to upload log data to Scalyr:
- Scalyr agent
- Scalyr API
- Integrations with various third-party platforms (ex. Kafka, Fluentd, AWS, etc.)
All 3 methods are capable of handling terabytes of daily log volume.
The application is hosted on our Support page
You can simply drag and drop or select a log (text) file from your local machine and all of the data will be available within your Scalyr account in a matter of seconds.
Some other features of the app:
- Allows the uploading of multiple text-formatted files (simply drag and drop them into the box).
- File size limit of 25MB
- Enables selection of predefined (use the drop-down list), or user defined parsers
- Immediate deletion of files (after they have been uploaded to Scalyr)
We recommend defining your own parser(s) in advance of uploading any logs. You can build the parser on your own, or ask us to edit it for you on the parsers page. In addition, we have a parser tester that makes it easy for you to debug your parser against actual log data before deploying it.
Feel free to send us your feedback or report any issues you found by submitting a ticket to the Support team. We look forward to hearing from you!
