Documentation forPapertrail



Papertrail can create and update a metric on HostedGraphite with the number of log messages matching a search alert, which can then be visualized within the HostedGraphite app.


Follow the steps in Alerts.

Papertrail settings

From the HostedGraphite account home, copy the API Key. Enter a Metric name, using the recommended format.

In HostedGraphite, the metric name will appear with the sender name appended to it, so that counts can be analyzed per-sender.

Because Papertrail is sending a count of events (Counter metric), use the sum data view to see an accurate visualization in Grafana graphs.
