This topic describes the configuration process and collection modes when you use Logtail
to collect text logs from servers.
Log Service provides a configuration wizard that you can use to configure log collection.
Before you create a Logtail configuration, we recommend that you take note of the
limits of Logtail. For more information, see Logtail limits
If the default settings of Logtail do not meet your collection requirements, you can
modify the startup parameters of Logtail. For more information, see Configure the startup parameters of Logtail.
Logtail allows you to collect text logs in various modes. The following modes are
supported: simple mode, full regex mode, delimiter mode, JSON mode, NGINX mode, Internet
Information Services (IIS) mode, and Apache mode.
