Configuration Settings

To configure LogScale's basic functionality, you'll need to set parameters in the LogScale configuration file, server.conf in the /etc/humio directory or the humio-config.env file.

For a complete list of all of the parameters, see LogScale Configuration Parameters.

When running LogScale in Docker, you can pass set the --env-file= parameter and keep your configuration in a file. For a quick introduction to setting configuration options, see the documentation on running Container Deployment Using humio (Testing Only). Docker only loads the environment file when the container is initially created. If you make changes to the settings in your environment file, simply stopping and starting the container will not work. You need to delete the container:

$ docker rm

and run it again using

$ docker run
