We’re very proud to introduce our newest addition to Dynatrace—an extension of our highly acclaimed Log analytics functionality. As of today, all limits of the free version of Dynatrace Log analytics have been removed and you can now store log data in central storage in the cloud (SaaS) or NFS (managed). If your environment qualifies for EAP, you can enroll using the invitation button on the Log Viewer screen.

Log analytics premium (LAP) is a paid extension to the basic Log analytics capabilities that are provided by Dynatrace. LAP removes the following limitations from basic Log analytics mode:

  • Limit of 20 log files per query
  • Limit of 500 MB of total log data for analysis
  • Limit of 7 days of analysis history
  • Limit of 5 log-based event definitions

Log analytics premium additionally enables you to store all logs centrally within external storage. This makes log data available independent of log files themselves. This can be beneficial in the following situations:

  • Short log retention periods
  • Volatile log storage
  • Legal requirements for keeping logs archived centrally for long time periods
