Working with Logs

This section talks about ways Netdata collects and visualizes logs.

The systemd journal plugin is the core Netdata component for reading systemd journal logs.

For structured logs, Netdata provides tools like log2journal and systemd-cat-native to convert them into compatible systemd journal entries.

You can also find useful guides on how to set up log centralization points in the Observability Cetralization Points section of our docs.
