Enable Raw Line Storage

Mezmo parses log lines we receive from various sources to surface the content of log lines, so your account isn’t charged for retaining the entirety of bulky log line formats. However, there may be situations where you want to receive the raw line in its entirety, including the original format. In those situations, you can enable saving and viewing raw lines for your account.

📘

Owners and Admins Only

The option to store and show raw log lines is only available to Owners and Admins of the organization. The toggle to turn this selection on and off will not be visible to other roles.

🚧

Storage Costs May Increase

Enabling this feature may result in the retention of more data in your account, and your storage costs may increase accordingly. Most accounts will only see a minor increase in storage costs, but certain log formats will increase costs more than others. Github and Akamai as log sources tend to be more verbose in the raw form, and are anticipated to lead to greater cost increases. Other log sources that have large raw payloads may also result in increased costs.

  1. In the Web App, under Organization in the left-hand navigation pane, click General.
  2. Under Store and Show Raw Line, move the toggle switch to On.

Within five minutes of toggling this feature on, your raw log lines will be sent to storage.
