View your logs

After successfully installing an Agent and adding a Source to your agent, you should now be seeing your logs on the Explore page. If this page isn't displaying any of your logs as you expect, check out our troubleshooting page to verify your configuration is correct.


At first glance, you should see some key pieces of information to help you locate your logs. First, the Type. The Type allows you to determine the Source or Type of the log event at a quick glance. You can also filter or search for this value as well.

Severity gives you a quick, colorized view of the log event as well. For all of our supported log types where severity is present in the log event, observIQ Cloud maps these severities to a common severity scale.


As your logs are ingested, you'll see the Available fields section begin to populate. Fields are objects that discovered and parsed by our log agent and indexed by Elasticsearch. You can use these fields to to filter, sort and search your logs, as well as create Dashboards and VIsualizations.


Now that you've verified you're seeing logs, we'll point out some of the basic functionality in Kibana to help you drill down further.
