Compare the Log Records

Some visualization options in Oracle Log Analytics let you compare two log records and display the changes in patterns.

Some sample use cases where you may want to compare log records are:
  • Determine what was different in the log stream right after a failure as compared to a normal period.

  • Compare events right after a software deployment.

You can compare log records in the following visualizations only:

  • Records with Histogram

  • Records

  • Table with Histogram
