Pivotal Cloud Foundry Log Search

IMPORTANT: The PCF Log Search tile is deprecated, and no further development will be made against this product.

This documentation is for the Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) Log Search tile.

PCF Operators can use the PCF Log Search tile to analyze logs from different tiles and components running in the same PCF environment. It is not intended to be a general purpose log analysis system, or to centralize logs from multiple PCF Foundations.

PCF Log Search is based on the Elastic ELK stack, with customization to receive, parse, and standardize data from other tiles. Operators use the Kibana component of PCF Log Search to find and visualize system data.

PCF Log Search can also selectively forward this data to other log analysis systems.
