  • Select logs-* index pattern in the Kibana dashboard. Select index pattern

  • Enter * in the Kibana search bar to see all logs.

  • Examine the histogram for a gap in recent logs as it is shown on the image below. A gap means that Log Search cannot keep up with indexing and parsing the incoming data in real-time. To address this issue, you can scale up your cluster to handle the load. Gap in logs
