When an application starts having a higher traffic, reading logs can be cumbersome. Using a log management solution to gather the logs from all your applications and all your containers eases your work when trying to find an information amongst all these lines of logs. A few SaaS solutions exist such as Logentries, Logmatic.io, Papertrail or Graylog. You can also host such solution on Scalingo. Here is a tutorial on how to deploy the ELK stack on Scalingo. We also support sending your applications logs using the standard syslog protocol over UDP, TCP or TCP+TLS.

As this feature is private beta, you cannot activate logs drain by yourself. You just need to add an environment variable containing the token to the used logs management service, and contact the support so that we activate the logs drain. In a matter of minutes, your logs flow to the logs management service.
