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.

Our log management solution provides deeper visibility into application and infrastructure performance data (events and errors) to reduce mean-time-to-resolve (MTTR) and quickly troubleshoot production incidents. It does this by providing super-fast searching capabilities, alerts, and co-location of application, infrastructure, and log data, while visualizing everything from a single place.

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, allowing you to get to the root cause of problems quickly, without losing context switching between tools.

Log management features include:

  • Instantly search through your logs.
  • Visualize your log data directly from the Logs UI.
  • Use logging data to create custom charts, dashboards, and alerts.
  • Troubleshoot performance issues without switching between tools.

Bring in your logging data

You can bring your log data into New Relic using a compatible log forwarding plugin, or with OpenTelemetry.

Once log management is enabled, you can also connect your logs with your APM agent, Kubernetes clusters, or distributed tracing to get additional contextual logging data with our logs in context extensions.
