What are LogDNA Screens?

LogDNA Screens is a log visualization tool which displays a series of widgets that you can use to share across your organization. Widgets can display your log activity, from the number of logs ingested in the last 4 hours, to a line graph comparing today’s logs to yesterday’s logs. You can control the data you want to display by creating a “Screen” with a combination of different widgets. Post your screen on a company monitor to provide your organization with a snapshot of your system’s activity.
