- cloud logging enables many sources to arrive in one viewable, searchable location
npm install node-red-contrib-logentries - This will download this module and place in your node_modules directory npm install logentries - This installs the required NodeJs package for logentries service. However it currently requires an update so navigate to your subdirectory of node_modules\logentries\lib and edit logentries.js file so that line 57 is changed from: port: opts.secure ? 20000 : 10000, to this: port: opts.port || (opts.secure ? 20000 : 10000),
This module sends your logging entries to the cloud hosted logging service logentries.com. You will need an account with this service for the module to work.
Once you have logentries.com account, you need just one configuration item to initialize a logging instance (you can create more than one):
- TOKEN: As supplied by Logentries when you create a logfile of source type Token TCP.
