Logs (experimental)

NAIS comes with Grafana Loki installed which is a log collection system integrated with Grafana and very similar to Prometheus in design. No configuration is needed to get started from the application side.

Logs in Loki are accessible through a Grafana datasource and can be used to create dashboards and alerts. There is one loki datasource per environment, and the datasource name is <environment>-loki.
