From the Log Queries screen you can set up monitors for your Saved Log Searches. Below will give you some tips on configuring and implementing log query monitors.

Add a New Monitor

You can find the Log Queries link under the Monitoring tab. Once there select "Add New" to set up a new Log Query.

Configure Monitor Settings

If you have already saved a search in the Logs Dashboard and wish to monitor it, select it in the drop down list. You also have the option to create a new search to monitor. After giving the monitor a name, assign a search time frame. This will determine the time span that query matches are checked.

Add Alerts to the Monitor

After you create the monitor, you will have the option of configuring when you will receive alerts for query matches. In the example above, this log monitor is configured to trigger a warning alert when 5 or more query matches occur within a 60 minute timespan.
