The following tutorial will show you how to install the Fastly dashboard in Scalyr.
Fastly Logs provide an important resource for troubleshooting connectivity problems, pinpointing configuration areas that could use performance tuning, and identifying the causes of service disruptions. Fastly's Real-Time Log Streaming feature allows you to automatically save logs to a third-party service for storage and analysis.
You can connect this to Scalyr to quickly ingest logs and produce log-based metrics to pinpoint issues quickly.
Utilizing Scalyr's timeseries database and PowerQueries, these logs can be rolled up into a prebuilt dashboard.
