## Background I have a number of queues that I track. I'm trying to set up thresholds for specific outliers that can have large queues. My current Dashboard query is as so: ``` select Top(@Properties.Total, 1) as TotalMessages where Has(@Properties.Name) group by @Properties.Name ``` ## Goal I'm looking to set up an alert that keys on a specific grouping and has a condition similar to: ``` Condition: TotalMessages > 30000 and @Properties.Name like 'my-queue' ``` ## Problem I can't seem to include the grouped property name in the condition Any ideas?

Hi, is it possible to have logged text underneath structured data in Seq UI for levels < error? I mean the place, where Seq shows Exception stack trace. That's almost a blocker for us - we'd like to log jsons and SQL queries on DEBUG level, and it's impossible to read it, when it's in the entry header.

Hi I'm getting unauthorized when installing a package from our VSTS/ADO Nuget Feed. We've tried both the v3 and v2 nuget endpoint (eg https://mydomain.pkgs.visualstudio.com/_packaging/myteam/nuget/v2). Is there a way we may be able to get this working? We use a Personal Access Token (PAT) for authentication to the VSTS feed. In Team City we can authenticate the feed by putting any random username in and the PAT in the password. Via the VSTS REST API we can use Basic auth by base64 encoding a blank username with the PAT (eg base64 ":mypat"). I'm not sure if that's what Seq does but it doesn't allow for an empty username. Thanks Steve

Hello, I would like not to use the NLog.config file, and instead i would like to config it in the code it self. My goal is to send logs to my local host in the Seq server. The configuration at the NLog.config file is: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <nlog xmlns="http://www.nlog-project.org/schemas/NLog.xsd" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.nlog-project.org/schemas/NLog.xsd NLog.xsd" autoReload="true" throwExceptions="false" internalLogLevel="Off" internalLogFile="c:\temp\nlog-internal.log"> <targets> <target name="seq" xsi:type="BufferingWrapper" bufferSize="1000" flushTimeout="2000"> <target xsi:type="Seq" serverUrl="http://localhost:5341" apiKey="" /> </target> </targets> <rules> <logger name="*" minlevel="Info" writeTo="seq" /> </rules> </nlog> Thanks and have a good day.

Hi We are testing SEQ and really like i so far. I have one small problem. We have a few services that are configured to import data at certain times. I would like to be alerted if this process hasn't been started for some reasons. In this case I am not looking for an error, but looking for the absence of a certain event. So I would like to be notified if the event with type ImportingDataSucceeded hasn't been received by SEQ between 1:59 am and 2:01 am each day. Any idea how can achieve this? Thanks in advance Regards Kenneth

If i use Microsoft.Extensions.Logging.ILogger.BeginScope to wrap a series of messages, how can i in seq search for messages inside the scope? For example, seq shows the following property value: Scope ["Processing transfer: 1810121716551221"] I tried several filters to try to search out all messages with the transfer order number but couldn't get any luck. Wondering if this is a supported scenario?

Recently, we've noticed that our installation of Seq can consume large amounts of RAM. We ran across [this](https://docs.getseq.net/v3/discuss/56b536232d7fc00d0037f494) article. Before we went through the steps outlined in the link above (uninstall, install with ram argument, etc...) I wanted to confirm with you: Does log event data in seq persist during/after an uninstall? i.e. if we uninstall/install to set the RAM limit, will that remove any of the data previously logged to Seq? Thanks

As part of a security auditing we are in need of enforcing TLS 1.2 to avoid vulnerability exploits from previous versions. Is there any way to configure this kind of enforcement in SEQ? Reference: https://blog.pcisecuritystandards.org/are-you-ready-for-30-june-2018-sayin-goodbye-to-ssl-early-tls

Hi, Would it be possible to add the functionality to allow more than one provisioning rule for more than one AD group. I.E User AD group has one set of permissions, and Admin AD group provisions something else. All access is managed via AD in order for it to be properly audited, currently we have to manually add privileges. I know you can change the new user default permissions but that shifts the problem, rather than solving it. Thanks

Hi, I get an eventlog message stating Seq could not do or took a long time to process maintenance. Our logging store isn't even 20% of what we need to in the end, so if it is already a concern, how can we speed things up? The machine should be fast enough (storage runs about 150MB/sec) I feel something else is up... Can you give us a bit more insights on the message? The message is: seq (2228) Seq-856c47b15a8144b3b9a791066b1a3b79: Database Maintenance has completed a full pass on database 'C:\ProgramData\Seq\Extents\2018-04-04_2018-04-11\extent.seq'. This pass started on 9/10/2018 and ran for a total of 1461671 seconds (16 days). This database maintenance task exceeded the 7 day maintenance completion threshold. One or more of the following actions should be taken: increase the IO performance/throughput of the volume hosting the database, reduce the database size, and/or reduce non-database maintenance IO. 1280 pages seen

What is the filter syntax for specifying that a property that is a collection must be nonempty? This information is not in the Collections section of the Filter Syntax page .  https://docs.getseq.net/docs#collections

Hi guys, we are loving Seq so far! We have some critical business applications running as Windows services and scheduled tasks which log to Seq. One use case is we would like to create downtime alerts if these systems ever fail to start when they're supposed to. e.g. one service typically runs once per week between 10am and 11am on Wednesday. So we need to be notified if the service does not log anything during this window. We are able to filter by time of day using TimeOfDay easily enough... e.g. Application = 'MyApplication' and TimeOfDay(@Timestamp, 10) >= TimeSpan('10:00') and TimeOfDay(@Timestamp, 10) <= TimeSpan('11:00') ... but we're struggling to also filter by specific day of the week. Any tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Andy
