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.

Congrats! Your logs are flowing into LogDNA. What’s next?
