Log Service provides the data shipping and consumption features. You can ship log data to Alibaba Cloud services such as OSS and MaxCompute in real time by using the Log Service console. You can also use an SDK or the API of Log Service to consume log data in real time. This topic describes the benefits, scenarios, and shipping destinations of the data shipping feature.
In the Log Service console, you can ship log data to other Alibaba Cloud services. Then, you can store or consume the log data by using other systems such as E-MapReduce. After you enable the log shipping feature, Log Service ships the collected log data to the specified cloud service at regular intervals.
The log shipping feature can be used to connect Log Service with data warehouses.
