Log Analytics Dashboards

You can build a log analytics dashboard for any Fusion collection that contains one or more logfiles. Each logfile entry contains a timestamp plus some amount of additional event information. The time field must be a Solr trie-date field (with field suffix "_tdt").

This is an example of a log analytics dashboard. It is the default dashboard that appears when you click Analytics on the Fusion Launcher. Note the navigation to other dashboards in the upper right corner.

The more information and structure that can be extracted from the logfile and modeled in a Solr document, the more possibilities for analytics and visualizations. At a minimum log data must include:

  • a timestamp in an allowed standard date/time format

  • text message(s) which be unstructured or semi-structured

Search query controls

  • query

  • timepicker

  • dateRange

Display controls

At a minimum, a log analytics dashboard contains a histogram.
