Logentries for monitoring log and for alerts

We use Log entries for monitoring logs for applications deployed to heroku.

It also provides the Tags and Alerts feature which needs a bit of customization. That’s what we are going to discuss here.

Delete tags for demohost

By default, it creates a number of tags for “demohost”. Just delete all those records.


Change report frequency

By default, the report frequency is 100 per hour.


That’s a bit too much. Let’s change that to 1 per hour.

Send email to flowdock email address

We use flowdock as the chat tool for the team. Flowdock provides an email address for each channel. In the log entries, we use this email address as the address to be notified.
