Log Service provides access points to three network types: intranet, private network, and the Internet. This allows for easy access and convergence of data in hybrid network environments.
Each region is provided with three access points:
- Intranet (classic network): Can be accessed by services within the same region. This type of access point is recommended for optimal bandwidth link quality.
- Internet (classic network): Can be accessed by any service. The access speed varies with link quality. HTTPS is recommended for transmission security.
- Private network (VPC): Can be accessed through VPC by services in the same region.
Assume that Log Service is created in China East 1 (Hangzhou). The following table shows access to Log Service from different types of networks.
|Data source||Network access type||Network solution|
|China East 1 (Hangzhou)||ECS classic network||Intranet|
|China East 1 (Hangzhou)||ECS VPC||Private network|
|China East 2 (Shanghai)||ECS classic network/VPC||Internet (HTTPS)|
|IDC||Leased line connected to China East 1 (Hangzhou)||Intranet|
- Logtail: Refer to Install Logtail for Windows and Install Logtail for Linux.
- To collect logs on a non-ECS server, you need to place a user ID (through the touch command) on the server to indicate the server owner. For details, refer to Configure user IDs for non-Alibaba Cloud ECS.
- In VPC, if machine groups cannot be identified by IP addresses, use user-defined IDs to manage machines. The IDs are used to group machines as web-server and app-server with support of automatic resizing.
- API/SDK: Configure access points.
- Tracking Pixel/Android/IOS SDK: Access Log Service through the Internet.
- Syslog: Refer to the above Logtail description.
