Reference Manuals


In addition to the Documentation, as an addendum to it, the Humio Library provides some reference manuals of sorts. This is fairly raw text, without much embellishment. Below is a list of reference manual provided and brief descriptions of each. Click on the heading for a manual to go to it.

Query Language

The Humio Query Language is the syntax that lets you compose queries to retrieve, process, and analyze data in Humio. This includes filters, assignment operators, and logical operators (e.g., and, or, not), as well as conditional and matching statements. It also explains joins.

Query Functions

Humio’s query functions take a set of events, parameters, or configurations to produce, reduce, or modify values within that set, or within the events themselves within the query pipeline. Humio query functions can be used either to transform. filter data, or they can be used to aggregate data.

Application Programming Interface (API)

Humio’s User Interface provides a tremendous amount of functionality for querying data. Everything you can do with Humio’s UI, you can also do through our HTTP API. The reason for this is that the UI uses the public API. So if you want to interface your own applications to your Humio installation or Humio Cloud, you can use the Humio API.

Command-Line Interface

We’re developing a command-line interface to Humio. At this point, it’s in beta-testing mode, but will soon be available to the public.

Again, these are just reference manuals on the topics listed here. If you want to know about installing, configuring, and using Humio software, go to the Documentation. For troubleshooting and best practices articles, go to the Knowledge Base.
