Logs in Grafana Cloud
Use our high-performance Loki service to store and explore all your logs in a single place.
- Grafana Loki is a native log component of Grafana Cloud.
- Create and manage all of your Prometheus-style alerting rules for Loki log data without needing to upload or edit configuration files or install additional tools.
Correlate metrics and logs side-by-side
Our high-performance system allows you to bring together logs from all your applications and infrastructure in a single place. By using the exact same service discovery as Prometheus, Loki can systematically guarantee your logs have consistent labels with your metrics. This allows you to seamlessly switch between metrics and logs, preserving context and saving time.
Use LogQL to extract metrics derived from log data — useful for legacy applications that don’t expose metrics.
