DevOps customers can easily review log data, diagnose issues, and use the rules engine to trigger serverless Functions or alerts with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Logging. Built on open standards, OCI Logging is an intuitive, centralized platform for all types of logs, such as audit, infrastructure, database and applications, which are needed for DevOps and security compliance.
For interoperability, OCI Logging uses the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) fluentd agent for log ingestion and the CNCF CloudEvents standard for log events. Pricing for Logging is based only on storage and includes a generous free tier. Log ingest and search are free.
One-click logging capability for all Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) resources, including virtual networks, object storage, and load balancers.
Centrally configure log ingestion across your entire IT estate. Easily collect logs including application, auditd, syslog, and Windows event logs from OCI, on-premises hosts, and other cloud providers.
Use log groups to limit access to your most sensitive logs. Log groups can restrict access and audit every interaction with these logs.
Logging provides a new, intuitive SQL-like query language for easy log analysis of all log types—infrastructure, application, audit, and database.
Easily diagnose and correlate issues across the entire stack. Aggregate and filter data from all applications, infrastructure, audits, and databases.
Seamlessly chart and visualize data from all services and applications in one view.
The rules engine allows users to take action on logs, such as triggering custom code or sending an alert. Using Service Connector Hub, Logging can be integrated with Monitoring, Notifications, and Streaming.
Export logs to Object Storage or leverage Kafka-compatible Streaming for easy integration with third-party SIEM providers including Splunk. Logging also supports Grafana dashboards.
Emit metrics directly from logs into Monitoring, enabling features, such as alarms and Notifications. With log-based metrics, DevOps engineers can use a single view for infrastructure and applications.
Archive logs for auditing and compliance into Object Storage buckets that can be retained indefinitely or automatically purged through lifecycle policies.
Logging leverages Fluentd to easily deploy, configure, and manage agents. Developers can use hundreds of open source community plugins to ingest, parse, and enrich their logs.
Every event ingested into Logging is automatically normalized into the CloudEvents 1.0 format for easy interoperability with other cloud native tools.
Data and DevOps engineers can use existing Kafka connect integrations to push logs to Kafka-compatible streams.
Archive logs, for auditing and compliance, into Object Storage buckets that can be retained indefinitely or automatically purged through lifecycle policies.
Organizations can manage their log data with Logging’s native capabilities as well as its interoperability with the cloud native ecosystem and Grafana.

We’re pleased to announce the general availability of the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Logging service. Logging is a cloud native, fully managed, distributed logging platform that simplifies ingesting, managing, and analyzing logs from your entire stack. The service brings all your logs into one view: infrastructure, application, audit, and database.Read the complete post
Logging supports ingestion from VCNs as well as other OCI resources, such as Functions and API Gateway.
Easily deploy and manage agents across an entire fleet of hosts directly from the console. Ingest and parse the logs directly using Fluentd.
Limit access to sensitive logs to only specific users within log groups, or integrate with Identity and Access Management to define access policies and rules. Any unauthorized request will be denied and audited for security.
Filter, aggregate, and visualize all logs in one view—infrastructure, application, audit, and database.
Push logs to third-party observability tools, such as Splunk, using Service Connector Hub.
