Anatomy of the Log UI
The Log UI makes it easy to view, search and explore your logs.
The Logs UI is organized in 2 mains areas:
Selecting "Logs" in the Main Navigation (red) takes you to the Log UI. It is organized around a Search and Filter Controls area (green) and a Data Visualization area (blue).
All throughout the UI, log severities are mapped to different colors to ease visualization:
- Red for error logs
- Orange for warning logs
- Blue for info logs
- Green for other logs
PacketAI provides powerful and extensive search and filter controls, as well as deep-dive inspection tools for your logs.
- The main search box is located at the top, it supports a wide range of query types.
- The date picker lets you adjust the time window of observation.
- The component filter provides auto-completion for quick filtering by component
- The namespace filter lets you select one of the namespaces.
- The cluster filter lets you select one of the cluster names.
- The Kubernetes workload section supports filtering based on multiple selections over multiple workload types (Only available for Kubernetes stacks)
This is where logs, log patterns but also log-specific dashboard and controls (such as Log Health Dashboard, Log Pattern Alerting, etc.) are displayed.
The are is clearly organized in 3 main parts:
- 1.The log stacked bar chart located at the top. It represents how log severity counts vary over time. Counts are aggregated by time buckets of varying size, depending on the period range.
- 3.The log display grid below the tab navigation. It shows selected logs filtered by decreasing timestamp and provides the main entry point to inspecting and drilling down on logs.
