Manage Usage

Manage the amount of ingestion data by receiving usage alerts and seeing a data ingestion breakdown by top sources and top apps.

You can view and monitor how much data your organization ingests with LogDNA’s “Manage Usage” Dashboard. To reduce the amount of logging data your organization ingests and retains, refer to the following documentation:

Manage Usage Dashboard

The Dashboard can be found in your LogDNA application via Settings < Usage < Dashboard.

Here you can view:

  • Amount of data ingested in the past 30 days
  • Top sources and top apps that contribute to the most logs
  • Estimated usage for the given month
  • Breakdown of data ingested by day

Note: On a daily basis, only the top 50 apps/sources/tags are collected — thus if a particular app had the 51st most usage on a particular day, that app data would not be surfaced here in the Usage Dashboard.

Email Digest

You can subscribe to a weekly or monthly digest breakdowning your usage data in the given time period.

Usage Alerts

You can set up email alerts to notify you when you reach some percentage of the usage limit.

To begin, define a “Usage Limit” that will be used as your desired usage limit and will impact the specific usage amount that triggers an email alert. Please note that your defined “Usage Limit” only affects email alerts and will not cause log ingestion to stop after reaching this limit.

After defining a “Usage Limit”, add email recipients who will be notified when a certain usage percentage is reached. You can add as many email addresses as you need.
