Orion Platform 2020.2 release summary

What's new? A much anticipated new log source, flat log files! Now you can ingest and visualize data from flat application log files right alongside your other crucial log data when troubleshooting and monitoring your Orion nodes. In addition to the new feature we also invested in some improvements to the performance and responsiveness of the UI when dealing with larger data sets so there will be less waiting for results when working in the log viewer.

How does it work? Flat log file ingestion is accomplished using the same Orion agent that you were already using to collect Windows Events from nodes in Orion. (This initial version only supports Windows nodes) 

How do I get started? Simply create a profile and assign it to an agent based node... In the Orion console, go  to Settings -> All Settings -> Product Specific Settings -> Log and Event Settings and then select "Profiles" and click "Create" to start a profile that defines the attributes of the log file(s) you want to collect and the agent based nodes you want the profile to apply to.

Comments

Verify excited for the addition of application log files.  I'm really hoping in the next version it will also support log files from Linux servers as well.

Thanks @nglynn glad you are excited for the new features. Linux support is something we are considering for a potential future version for sure.
