  • Long-term archive (S3)

  • What happens when the limit is reached?
    • It’s up to you. Logs can stop or can continue as a usage-based service (up to 200% extra, at 30% higher price per GB). You’re always notified and can switch at any time.
  • How is log transfer (GB) calculated?
    • The length of the message, plus 50 bytes for metadata. 1 GB is 6.6 million 100-character messages. Transfer is measured monthly, so day-to-day variations are fine.
  • Can I log from my less-common network or app?
    • If it has Internet access, the chances are very good. Yes to NAT, dynamic IPs, text log files, VMs, EC2, PaaS, and local collectors. Ask us or try it.
  • How can I reach you?
    • Email us. When we’re awake, we’re available.
  • How did you choose these durations?
    • We used them. 3-7 days satisfied something like 97% of our own searches. Early users made the same observation. Archives worked well for the rest.
  • Can I search, analyze, and download archives?
    • Yes. Archives are downloadable text files and are copied to Amazon S3. Our docs make it simple to analyze and search them: RedshiftAthenaHadoop on EMR.
