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. Learn about New Relic ‘logs in context’ which integrates your logs with your traces, APM, infrastructure, and error data for faster troubleshooting.

With hands-on labs in a sandbox environment, you’ll get to filter and search log data, 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.
