this looks like a really interesting feature that would be useful in one of my projects, trouble is, I don't take a dependency on the serilog library and instead ship raw json events to the server. Is this feature accessible through the Seq.Api package or similar? https://github.com/wwwlicious/servicestack-seq-requestlogsfeature

I've been considering using Seq for heartbeat monitoring (together with the Timeout app). I'm just wondering: the heartbeat event needs to occur very frequently (let's say: every 10 secends). After I receive the new event, the old one is useless, so I don't need to store it anymore. I've noticed there's a "Retention" section, but it doesn't allow me to specify time less than 1h. Would it be a big pain to provide an option to specify minutes as well (e.g. 5 minutes) ?

Hi, I've been playing with the Seq.Apps API and managed to get the basics. Now I've been wondering: why the ISubscribeTo interface is generic ? This suggests that I could subscribe to a specific subset of events. However, when I tried to change ISubscribeTo<LogEventData> in order to use my data type (let's say: ISubscribeTo<MyTypeWithOneField>), Seq refused to even load my nuget package: Could not install app A type marked with [SeqApp] was not found in <my_nuget_name>.

Hi, We've centralized all our logging to a central seq instance, but it gets hammered with a lot of log entries. The problem is that it can no longer keep its latest segment in memory because of its size. Segments are created every 7 days now, but if we could configure this interval of creating new segments we could decrease the size of the latest segment and keep this in ram. We only really need the today and yesterday (2 newest segments) in memory with the rest available from disk. Regards, Yorick

We are just getting started with Seq, and I was wondering if there is a way to send emails as a batch once they reach a certain amount or a certain amount of time has passed. Basically, we would like to be notified of any exceptions, but we don't want to flood the email system. So if we receive 200 events in 10 seconds, the details should be put into a digest and sent via email.

I'd like to know if it is possible to host SEQ within an existing OWIN based web application - similar to how Hangfire dashboard works: http://docs.hangfire.io/en/latest/configuration/using-dashboard.html ?

Is there a way to share signals between users? We recently got a license but after setting up user management I noticed only I (as the original admin) carried over any of the signals that were previously setup. Some of the signals require a bit of knoweldge to setup, more than I'd expect a support operations staff member to have to know so it'd be great if I could setup signals for others or share them as some sort of global signal.

I used the api to back fill old log entries that had only been written to SQL via SeriLog. Worked great! But I realized that i didn't set an important property correctly in all cases when back filling. Is there any way to update existing entries by Id? Or delete and re-add?

Hi, the documentation about authentication via Active Directory (http://docs.getseq.net/docs/active-directory) mentions "one domain". Does Seq support authenticating users from several domains of an "AD Forest" (with trust relationship between those domains) ?

We are looking at adopting the great seq/serilog logging framework but first want to trial it. I am trying to backfill a few months of error logs into it. How should I pipe them in to best showcase Seq's searching / indexing abilities? They are currently stored in a db table and we have discrete columns for Severity, MachineName, AppDomainName, ThreadId, etc. as well as the Stacktrace and raw Exception Message. Whats the best way to backfill these in? Thanks!

This was previously on the UserVoice site, but that seems to have disappeared. I would like to be able to specify an API key manually. This is because my production & development environments have separate seq servers, and I would like to embed the specific API key into the application and have it be the same on both. This was previously just a "might be nice to have" feature, but now you've introduced remote level control in serilog, this feature suddenly becomes a lot more valuable, so I've reposted it here as a suggestion. My suggestion of how it would work would simply be a checkbox on the new API key form for "generate automatic key", which when unticked allows you to paste in a key generated from another Seq instance.
