Select data set parameters for a data stream

First, decide which types of logs you want your data stream to collect, either raw logs or logs aggregated over selected metrics. Here, you can also select or ignore parameters or metrics that you want to focus on in your logs.

Data set parameters that you can select depend on the type of logs your data stream collects. See Types of logs.

  3. Depending on the type of logs you've chosen, select parameters that you want to receive in log lines or metrics that you want to use to aggregate and categorize your logs.
  4. Click Next to continue to the Delivery tab.
