Log and event processing
Log and event processing offers a flexible central way of extracting value from ingested data. It can reshape incoming log data for better understanding, analysis, or further processing based on rules that you create, and it can log information in a wide variety of formats depending on the application or process, operating system, and other factors.
In log processing, for example, you can extract numerical values from log lines with log processing, turn the values into metrics, and include the metrics in dashboards and problem detection.
Log processing does not affect DDU consumption of log ingest.
Business event processing
In business event processing, for example, you can create a processing rule that transforms incoming events to meet your technical and administrative requirements.
