Log sources and storage (Logs Classic)
Log Monitoring Classic
Starting with OneAgent version 1.243 and Dynatrace Cluster version 1.252, we strongly encourage you to switch to Log Storage.
To include or exclude specific log sources from storage
- Select Settings from the Dynatrace navigation menu and in the Log Monitoring section, select Log sources and storage.
- Select Include all logs, Include the following logs, or Exclude the following logs from the list.
- Switch between tabs to select logs from Hosts perspective or from Process groups perspective.
Only log sources in the currently active (selected) tab will be saved. Log sources marked in the other tab will be ignored.
- Select Save changes.
Migration to the new storage configuration
After you select Dynatrace menu > Settings > Log Monitoring > Log storage, automatic migration from the old storage configuration format to the new one takes place. The following changes will occur in your current configuration:
All items configured on the Hosts perspective are migrated as a set of matchers to the corresponding host scope.
Process groups perspective
Only the rules that are applied to a whole process group are migrated to the tenant scope. If a process group is enabled only for a subset of hosts, the relevant rules must be created on the host level.
After your configuration of log sources is successfully migrated, you can use new configuration items and add your matchers.
Frequently asked questions
No. After the change, all old configurations are wiped out, so be sure before you make this change.
