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

Prerequisites

Machine groups are created. For more information, see Create an IP address-based machine group or Create a custom ID-based machine group.

View the list of machine groups

  1. Log on to the Log Service console.
  2. In the Projects section, click the name of the project that you want to view.
  3. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Resources > Machine Groups.
  4. View the list of machine groups.

Modify a machine group

  1. In the Machine Groups list, click the machine group that you want to modify.
  2. On the Machine Group Settings page, click Modify.
  3. Modify the configurations of the machine group and click Save.

View the status of a machine group

You can view the heartbeat status in a machine group to check whether a machine in the group is connected to Log Service.
Note After you create a machine group, wait for 2 minutes to view the heartbeat status.
  1. In the Machine Groups list, click the machine group whose status you want to view.
  2. On the Machine Group Settings page, you can view the status of the machine group.
    • If a value in the Heartbeat column is OK, the machine is connected to Log Service.
    • If a value in the Heartbeat column is FAIL, the connection between the machine and Log Service is abnormal. Follow the on-screen instructions to troubleshoot the issue. For more information, see What can I do if the Logtail client has no heartbeat?. If the issue persists after troubleshooting, 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 Machine Groups list, click the machine group whose Logtail configurations you want to manage.
  2. On the Machine Group Settings page, click Modify.
  3. In the Configurations section, add or remove Logtail configurations for the machine group. Then, click Save.
    After you add a Logtail configuration to the machine group, the Logtail configuration is applied to the Logtail that is installed on each server in the machine group. After you remove a Logtail configuration from the machine group, the Logtail configuration is no longer applied to the Logtail that is installed on each server in the machine group.

Delete a machine group

  1. In the Machine Groups list, click the Machine group management icon icon next to the machine group that you want to delete and select Delete.
  2. In the message that appears, click OK.
