Getting Started with the LOGIQ PaaS Community Edition

If you’ve been looking for an inexpensive way to run your own observability stack while maintaining complete control over your data and its security, look no further. The LOGIQ PaaS Community Edition is officially live!

With the LOGIQ PaaS Community Edition, you can:

  • Ingest up to 50GB of log data per day with unlimited data retention
  • Store your log data on any S3-compatible cloud provider via the built-in Minio S3 service
  • Ingest logs from Syslog, RSyslog, Logstash, Fluent, AWS Firelens, JSON, and plenty more
  • Run up to 4 ingest worker processes

Before you begin

To get you up and running with the LOGIQ PaaS Community Edition quickly, we’ve made LOGIQ PaaS’ Kubernetes components available as Helm Charts. To deploy LOGIQ PaaS, you’ll need access to a Kubernetes cluster and Helm 3.

Add the LOGIQ Helm repository

Add LOGIQ’s Helm repository to your Helm repositories by running the following command.

helm repo add logiq-repo
helm install <deployment_name> logiq-repo/<chart_name>
helm search repo logiq-repo
$ helm repo update $ helm search repo logiq-repo NAME CHART VERSION APP VERSION DESCRIPTION logiq-repo/logiq 2.2.11 2.1.11 LOGIQ Observability HELM chart for Kubernetes
helm repo update

Create a namespace to deploy LOGIQ PaaS

Create a namespacewhere we’ll deploy LOGIQ PaaS by running the following command.

kubectl create namespace logiq

Prepare your Values file

Just as any other package deployed via Helm charts, you can configure your LOGIG PaaS deployment using a Values file. The Values file acts as the Helm chart’s API, giving it access to values to populate the Helm chart’s templates.

helm install logiq --namespace logiq --set global.persistence.storageClass=<storage_class_name> logiq-repo/logiq -f values.small.yaml

Read and accept the EULA

As a final step, you should read our End User’s License Agreement and accept its terms before you proceed with deploying LOGIQ PaaS.

The following table lists the latest version tags for all LOGIQ components.

Install LOGIQ PaaS

Now that your environment is ready, you can proceed with installing LOGIQ PaaS in it. To install LOGIQ PaaS, run the following command.

helm install logiq --namespace logiq --set global.persistence.storageClass=<storage class name> logiq-repo/logiq
