The primary interface to LogScale is through a web-based UI. This provides access to the repositories, where data is stored, and administration and control functions for LogScale.
Repositories and Views
Figure 9. Repositories and Views
It's in the User Interface that you'll set up and find respositories of the data containing your server logs and metrics. You can also configure views of repositories which allow to view the data from multiple repositories, filter data or limit access based on your interests and security needs. See the Repositories and Views documentation for much more information on how to create and use repositories.

Once you have data coming into your repositories, you can search that data through the LogScale Query interface. It allows for robust, fast regex searches of server logs and metrics contained in your repositories. See the Searching for Data page for instructions on how to search.
Figure 11. Dashboards
You can store often used searches in dashboards, a significant component of the LogScale User Interface. They are a great way to get an overview of your systems. They are composed of widgets that you create to view server activities in the form of various graphs and tables of relevant data.
