Log Timeline: It's About Time

Log Timeline: It's About TimeLog Timeline: It's About Time

Many of our customers want a simple way to see how often an event happens. In the past, LogDNA’s graphing capabilities helped fulfill this need, but it took you away from your current log context and often forced you to recall a specific query to reflect the correct graph. It can be cumbersome to do this when troubleshooting with constantly changing queries.

We are excited to announce Timeline, now available alongside your logs in the log viewer. You can quickly see total matches or detect peaks and valleys over time for any search term with one click. Just look for the "Timeline" toggle button next to the "Live Toggle" button.

Our goal with the new Timeline feature is to provide a more convenient way to visualize your log events and determine time ranges of interest by inspecting patterns in your logging activity. With Timeline, you can see line count breakdowns across your entire retention period in the search results. If you have an error message and would like to investigate more, you can use the Timeline capability to find out when this error message occurred, what other times this same error message appeared, and if there was a pattern. On the Timeline side panel, you will see a breakdown of your line counts (across your retention period). The panel is interactive and allows you to navigate your log history quickly. Use a single click to jump to a specific point in time, and drag a selection to scope your search to a time range.

Check it out below.

We hope that Timeline will help you with root cause analysis and troubleshooting.
