Monitoring and Alerting

Log data is full of opportunities to proactively monitor systems. Seq has a number of features to help you take advantage of this:

  • Events matching a signal, for example, "Errors", can be sent directly to a Seq App that integrates with email or a notification system
  • Dashboards provide a beautiful and functional way to track what's going on in a system, whether interactively, or on an overhead display
  • Alerts are thresholds set on dashboard charts, and send notifications through Seq Apps when a threshold is breached
  • Health Checks probe an HTTP or HTTPs endpoint periodically, and write results into the event stream for alerting and analysis
