Akka Configuration

LogScale uses Akka internally. You can configure Akka properties in your own LogScale installation.

The standard LogScale configuration is set as described in Configuration. Changing Akka configuration is for more advanced use cases. Akka configuration is specified using a configuration file. Reference configurations are:

To extend the default LogScale configuration, you have to create a new file that includes LogScale's default Akka configuration file. You do this by beginning with the line include "application".

logscale
docker run ... -v $YOUR_LOGSCALE_URL_PATH_TO_FILE:/humio-akka-application.conf

Then, tell LogScale to read the new Akka configuration file using humio-config.env.

ini files
HUMIO_OPTS= ... -Dconfig.file=/humio-akka-application.conf

The -Dconfig.file option is added to the JVM arguments telling Akka where to look for the configuration file.

The above steps should enable the new configuration when starting LogScale.

For better debugging it is possible to add akka.log-config-on-start = "on" to the configuration file. That will print the configuration at startup.

In this example we want to change the Akka log level.

ini files
include "application"
akka.log-config-on-start = "on"
akka.loglevel = "DEBUG"
