Getting Started with LogDNA
Start logging in 2 steps
Step 1. Download the LogDNA Agent
The LogDNA agent is used to collect your data and forward it into LogDNA for easy log collection and analysis.
Step 2. Tell the LogDNA Agent what to log
By default, the LogDNA agent automatically logs all .log and extensionless files located under /var/log/, but if you want to log other directories or files, you can specify logging paths by editing /etc/logdna.conf.
Just remember to restart the agent if you make any changes to the configurations.
