Get started with log management

As applications move towards the cloud, microservices architecture is becoming more dispersed, making the ability to monitor logs essential. New Relic offers a fast, scalable log management platform so you can connect your logs with the rest of your telemetry and infrastructure data in a single place. Watch this video (approx. 2:20 minutes) to see how it works.

Our log management solution provides deeper visibility into application and infrastructure performance data (events, errors, traces, and more) to reduce mean-time-to-resolve (MTTR) and quickly troubleshoot production incidents.

Find problems faster, reduce context switching

Log management provides a way to connect your log data with the rest of your application and infrastructure data. You can get to the root cause of problems quickly, without losing context from switching between tools. For example, you can:

  • Get relevant data across the New Relic UI that provides logs in context of issues in your apps and hosts.
  • Dive deeper into log data by using our Logs UI, and create custom charts, dashboards, and alerts.
  • Instantly search through your logs.
  • Troubleshoot performance issues without switching between other tools.
  • Visualize everything in a single place.
