Log messages are one of the most important types of application data. ClickHouse is very good at storing log data; many SaaS applications use it under the covers. In this webinar we will show examples of different application logs and how to design tables to store them. Options include using typed columns, strings, JSON, or key-value pair arrays. We’ll also discuss how materialized columns to improve filter speed, as well as techniques to tune index granularity for wide rows. This is the first in a series of webinars on log management. Future webinars will cover tools to load data as well as techniques to retrieve log information efficiently.
