Log Collection and Ingestion
Log Ingestion provides a way to transform unstructured log data into structured data and ingest it using Circonus. Structured log data allows for improved queries and filtering based on the data format when searching logs for an event.
Basic Log Ingestion Data Flow into Circonus
Log Ingestion relies on you adding log collection to your application’s environment to gather and send log data.
FluentBit is used as the log collector that collects log data from a file and sends the log data to Circonus Pipeline Exporter which encrypts, compresses and transports to the Circonus platform).
The data can then be explored through Circonus search queries or the Logs Explorer in Circonus.
