Log Service provides the real-time log consumption feature. This feature reads and writes full data in the first-in, first-out (FIFO) order, which is similar to Kafka. This topic describes the types of real-time log consumption.
|Real-time log consumption||Stream computing and real-time computing||Real time||You can set a retention period based on your business requirements.|
|Log query||Online query of recent hot data||Near real time (delayed for 1 second in 99.9% cases, and up to 3 seconds)||You can set a retention period based on your business requirements.|
|Log shipping||Full log storage for offline analysis||Delayed for 5 to 30 minutes||The retention period is subject to the storage system.|
