Compute@Edge log streaming: Heroku's Logplex

As part of our Real-Time Log Streaming feature for Compute@Edge services, if you use our Heroku add-on, you can send log files directly to Heroku's Logplex system. Logplex is Heroku's distributed syslog router that collates and distributes log entries from a variety of sources into a single channel.

Prerequisites

Before continuing, you will need the token from your Heroku Logplex account. If you don't have a Heroku Logplex account, now is the time to set one up by signing up for Heroku.

Once enabled, your Fastly logs will be available in exactly the same way as your regular app and hosted service logs. You can view them using the Heroku command line log viewer or send them to a logging add-on.
