Container Logs

Gather logs from your Applications running on k8s

To gather your application logs from Kubernetes, follow the below steps:

1) Create a Template

Navigate to the Fleet > Template page and click Add Template


Select Kubernetes as the Platform, fill in a Template Name and Cluster Name, select the Enable Container Logs option, and click Create. Note: by default, observIQ will gather logs from all of your applications. You may specify a specific pod or container if you prefer to narrow the scope.


2) Deploy observIQ Agent with observiq-agent.yaml

On the Template > [Template Name] page, click Add Agents.


On the Install Kubernetes Agents page, copy or download the observiq-agent.yaml, and use the provided kubectl command to deploy to your cluster.


After a few minutes, return to your Template. You'll see the Agents deployed to your Cluster, one for each Node (deployed as a Daemonset).


3) Explore your logs

Return to the Explore page, you'll now see your Container logs flowing into observIQ!


Additionally, because you selected Container as an Option in your Template, you'll have the [oiq] k8s - Overview Dashboard and corresponding visualizations automatically installed to your account.
