View log messages in real time (live tail)

Problem

When you deploy a new host, server, or make other application changes, you want to immediately see how your system responds to these changes. You need to view your log messages as they arrive in real time.

Solution

To focus on messages as they arrive in real time, enable live tail logging:

  1. Go to one.newrelic.com > Logs.

  2. Enter a query to focus on the type of log info you need, then click Query logs; for example:

    Find logs where annotations.restartRequested:"2020-12-23T18:00:00Z"
  3. Click the Start live tailing icon to enable [start live tailing icon] or disable [stop live tailing icon] it.
