[Loki / Promtail] A log aggregation system

Loki / Promtail for Yunohost


Loki is a horizontally-scalable, highly-available, multi-tenant log aggregation system inspired by Prometheus. It is designed to be very cost effective and easy to operate. It does not index the contents of the logs, but rather a set of labels for each log stream.

It’s presented as “like Prometheus, but for logs”.

Shipped version: 2.7.1~ynh2
