New Relic One weaves all of your logs and events data into a single, comprehensive view to empower you to easily correlate log data with APM, infrastructure and error data. Leverage Logs in Context where a trace and span ID is automatically applied to your Full Stack Observability content, enabling you to get to the root cause of problems quickly, without losing context switching between tools.

This workshop is a comprehensive introduction to understanding and working with logs in New Relic. Explore the different ways to bring your log data to New Relic, the fast and easy to use UI, as well as parsing, filtering, or dropping logs to match your needs. 

With hands-on labs in a sandbox environment, you’ll get to search log data with ease and speed, work with partitions and AI log patterns, troubleshoot errors in applications and trace data, create charts and dashboards to share with teams, and set up alert conditions for problems you want to prevent.
