How can I ingest old log files?

We like LogDNA, but sometimes (if we upgrade the client on ubuntu, but forget to manually restart the service) it will stop ingesting logs until we restart it. Now this happened for over a week, so we have some rotated logs not ingested.

Can I somehow manually ingest these logs, and have them appear with the right filename/source in LogDNA?

You could tackle this in two ways:

  1. Install another agent on your system to point to the specific logs.

OR

  1. Run a script with our Ingest API and ingest the specific logs you want.
