Note! Coralogix Events2Metrics supersedes this current page. New customers wishing to generate metrics from spans and logs should visit the Events2Metrics page to get started. We strongly encourage existing customers to migrate to Events2Metrics as well.
Coralogix Logs2Metrics enables you to generate metrics from your log data to optimize storage without sacrificing important data. You simply define a query and Coralogix will execute it every minute and store different data aggregations in a long-term index. Metrics start to gather from the point in time in which they were defined. The available query time range for your Logs2Metrics indices is 90 days.
Activating Logs2Metrics allows you to create up to 30 metrics with a 12 months retention period.
When creating a Logs2Metrics that expects a list of labels, logs that do not include some of the labels are converted into metric documents that only have a subset of the expected labels. Note that when using PromQL with Grafana variables, there is no option to retrieve metrics with a subset of the labels, returning only a partial subset of the results.
See screen shot below.
This behavior has been rectified by populating the missing labels with data and have the correct results showing.
With every L2M created in Coralogix, regardless to specific “Metric Fields” and “Labels” you may define, a default metric is created. This metric will be enabled with the L2M creation in Grafana and when utilizing PromQL. The “Default metric” label will be structured as “<The Metric Name>_cx_docs_total” e.g.: The L2M name is: “Status_500”, then the “Default Metric” name will automatically set as: “Status_500_cx_docs_total”.
A “Count” metric is enabled for tracking the number of logs matches the L2M filters,
i.e.: in Grafana, you can explore the number of logs that meet the L2M conditions such as:
You may also utilize PromQL (while creating a “Metric Alert”) and query the “Default Metric”,
A Logs2metric labels permutations (the unique combination of each of the labels values) is a finite number and it is defined by the user per Metric (at the bottom of the metric definition). By default, it is set to 30,000 permutations and you may choose different max permutations value per Metric, while the maximum permutation per account is 1,000,000.
At the top of your defined Metrics list, you will see how many available permutations you have left for your disposal.
Normally, a metric document will show the count of logs per unique permutation of the chosen labels. If you encounter a metric that shows under permutations amount an exclamation mark near the number of allocated permutations it means you have reached the permutations limit. You should adjust the permutation allocation to accommodate all possible permutations, otherwise, the metric document will contain an aggregated log count under a CoralogixOtherValues bucket.
