This topic describes how to view the list of machine groups, modify a machine group, and view the status of a machine group. This topic also describes how to manage Logtail configurations, and delete a machine group in the Log Service console.

View the list of machine groups

  1. Log on to the Log Service console.
  2. In the Projects section, click the name of the target project.
  3. In the left-side navigation pane, click Machine Groups to view the list of machine groups.

Modify a machine group

View the status of a machine group

You can view the heartbeat status of a machine group to check whether Logtail is installed on all servers in the machine group.
Note After you create a machine group, wait for 2 minutes before you view the heartbeat status.
  1. In the list of Machine Groups, click the target name of the machine group.
  2. On the Machine Group Settings page, you can view the status of the machine group.
    • If the heartbeat status is OK, Logtail is installed on each server in the machine group, and is connected to Log Service.
    • If the heartbeat status is FAIL, Logtail fails to connect to Log Service. You can click Reason next to the FAIL status for troubleshooting. For more information, see What can I do if the Logtail client has no heartbeat?. If errors persist, submit a ticket.

Manage Logtail configurations

You can create Logtail configurations in Log Service and apply the Logtail configurations to a machine group.

  1. In the list of Machine Groups, click the target name of the machine group.

    After a Logtail configuration is added to the machine group, the Logtail configuration is applied to Logtail that is installed on each server in the machine group. After a Logtail configuration is removed from a machine group, the Logtail configuration is no longer applied to Logtail of each server in the machine group.
  4. Click Save.
