Any idea on how to stop duplicating API logs in datadog. Currently request to my api are logged twice.
subscription field is 2 different values
What do you mean with respect to subscription field
The solution is to step sending the log twice most likely
I mean it has 2 logs for one request
Is the app emitting logs twice? Are there two datadog agents collecting them independently? Are you collecting logs from two different proxies that look identical?
Yea, you’re likely somehow producing the log once, and you’ve set things up such that you’re consuming it twice
Consuming in-container app logs that also get mirrored to STDOUT, as well as consuming STDOUT is one common scenario
Each log event should, I think, have some form of provenance info on it
I.e. which agent(s) sent/emitted the event
And via which channels
Is the app emitting logs twice? Yes
Are there two datadog agents collecting them independently? I can see 2 subscription values
Are those like cloudwatch events or something?
Can you share an actual instance of the event, with all/most of the metadata fields?
You should hopefully have some understanding of where you’re gathering logs from
One way or another, if you don’t want duplicate log events, you’ll either need to figure out a way to filter in the log pipelines, unsubscribe from a particular event stream/channel that has duplicates, or tell datadog agents to stop consuming events from something
There should be a shitload of tags on the log events
Container_name, pod_name if in k8s
Basically, DataDog will do what you tell it
If you tell it to listen to something, it’s going to listen to it and send the events
