Seq Documentation and Support

Welcome to the Seq documentation hub. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with Seq as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!

Get Started    

Writing Custom Inputs

Seq can host Seq Apps that act as high-performance log event inputs. As with other Seq Apps, inputs can be written in C# as plug-in assemblies, or as standalone executables.
