Documentation forLoggly


Navigation Notice: When the APM Integrated Experience is enabled, Loggly shares a common navigation and enhanced feature set with other integrated experience products. How you navigate Loggly and access its features may vary from these instructions.

Dashboards provide a single location for viewing all activity across your system for which log events are being sent. Dashboards allow you to create visualizations of the results of your search queries based on your log data. This may reveal issues and assist you in identifying issues your customers might be facing.

With the APM Integrated Experience, all AppOptics and Loggly dashboards are found in a single consolidated location. For more information about accessing and managing dashboards in the APM Integrated Experience, see Integrated Dashboards


To access your dashboards, click the Dashboard tab in the navigation pane. If no open dashboards display, the Manage Dashboards screen displays as described below.
