Compose Database-as-a-Service Help and Documentation

Everything you need to know about Compose, Hosted or Enterprise, is here in our help system. Whether you run one database for your businesses' sole application or six different databases to support an entire corporation, we've got the information you need.

etcd3 Add-ons

Overview

Our etcd deployments support the Syslog-NG add-on, with Papertrail or Loggly. It's billed at $9.00/mo

Syslog-NG

Configuration instructions for the syslog-ng add-on can be found on the Syslog-NG Setup page.

Logs are forwarded continuously from all the database capsules present on your deployment. For easier parsing, Compose adds a header to each log message that contains a timestamp, hostname, and process information.

As a result, the raw messages that arrive at your service will vary.

Papertrail

Raw Message: <timestamp> <hostname>: <binary[pid]>: <type info> | <etcd log>

Loggly

Raw Message: <hostname> : [<customer Token@port>] <binary[pid]: <type info> | <etcd log>
NB: In addition to just displaying the raw information from syslog-ng, Loggly also applies some parsing by default. It does not recognize the format of our logs, so you may want to implement your own parsing or derived fields to make more effective use of the logs there.

Logentries

Logentries is no longer available for new deployments or as a new add-on for existing deployments. The format is here for deployments where it is already configured.
Raw Message: <timestamp> <hostname>: <binary[pid]>: <type info> | <etcd log>
