About the Log Store

In App Metrics v2.1, Log Store provides a persistent storage layer for logs sent through Loggregator.

Log Store has the following features:

  • Multi-tenant aware: Log Store uses the auth proxy to ensure that app developers can only access their own logs.

  • Ubiquitous query language: Log Store uses a PromQL-style label selector query for filtering logs.

  • Powerful storage engine: Log store uses the InfluxDB storage engine, which has built-in compression and a memory-efficient series index. For more information about the InfluxDB storage engine, see the InfluxDB documentation.

Log Store offers multi-node deployments, data replication, and load balancing in a highly-available configuration.
