Reviewing service activity with the event log

Event logs keep track of events related to a service. You can use event logs to determine which service-level changes were made and by whom. For example, you can use them to see who activated the most recent version of a service and view recent service configuration setting changes.


For information on monitoring account activity, see our guide on the audit log. For information on monitoring the data that passes through Fastly, see our guide on Fastly's real-time log streaming features.

Follow these instructions to access the event logs for a service:

  1. Log in to the Fastly web interface and click either the Deliver link or the Compute link depending on your service type.

  2. The most recent service-related events are displayed near the bottom of the page, in the Event log area.
