Log Search – Get Started

Running your first search

Once you added log data into the XpoLog platform it is now available to be searched and analyzed. In order to run “Google – like” search on all logs and get results into a single interface we created the Search engine tab.

Click on the Search tab and the search console will show on your screen. 

In the search text box type – “*” (Star) and set the time frame to the right to “All time” now click on search button.

This search will browse across all log events from all sources stored and indexed by XpoLog. You will now see the number of events over time in the histogram, and list of events sorted by time under it.

Get started with more interesting search queries by search terms and sources correlated in different time frames. You can get more information on search query and syntax in the Search documentation.

Complex Search and statistics
