Loggly offers an endpoint that you can use to retrieve event counts and volume (optional). The endpoint to get events count and (optional) volume is:

Copy
https://<SUBDOMAIN>.loggly.com/apiv2/events/count

Substitute your subdomain name for <SUBDOMAIN> .

Usage

Call the endpoint with one or more parameters to get the count and optionally volume of events matching given search criteria.

Event Count Endpoint Request Parameters
q optional query string, using Search Query Language. Defaults to "All" events.
from optional Start time (in UTC) for the search. Defaults to "-24h". (See Time Ranges in Search.)
until optional End time (in UTC) for the search. Defaults to "now". (SeeTime Ranges in Search.)
include_volume optional true|false - if "true" returns also total size of events matching given query and time range in byte

Requesting events volume via "include_volume" parameter makes the API call run longer because it needs to calculate the events size. If you need just the count make sure to not use the "include_volume" parameter to make the calls faster.

Events Count Endpoint Response Parameters
count Number of events matching given search criteria
volume Total size of events matching given search criteria in bytes. This value is present only if the "include_volume=true" parameter is specified.

Events Count Endpoint Usage Examples

Substitute your subdomain name for <SUBDOMAIN> .

Request event counts for the last 10 minutes

Endpoint:

Copy
curl --user 'user:password' -XGET 'https://<SUBDOMAIN>.loggly.com/apiv2/events/count?q=*&from=-10m&until=now'

Output Example:

{
   "count": 2635
}

Copy
curl --user 'user:password' -XGET 'https://<SUBDOMAIN>.loggly.com/apiv2/events/count?q=*&from=-10m&until=now&include_volume=true'

Output Example:

{
   "count": 2635,
   "volume": 5224576
}
