Searching Multiple Regions
When performing either a basic search or advanced search on the Search page, you can search for logs from not only your home region, but also across multiple Oracle regions.
Multi-region search allows you to centrally run queries from the same location, rather than having to run a duplicate query in other regions. As result, you can more broadly search for logging events. When searching multiple regions, the results are fetched from the regions and the results are displayed on the Search page.
The maximum number of search results for all regions is 10000.
To search multiple regions:
- Select More search options. The Select regions to search field is displayed. By default, the field is populated with your active home region.
- To add more regions, click the field. The Select regions to search panel is displayed.
- Select the extra regions you want to search, and click Update
On the Search page, the Select regions to search field is updated with the extra regions you have selected, and the log data in the Explore tab is reloaded according to your multi-region search settings. The Visualize tab is not available for this type of search. Under the Explore tab, when you have toggled regions off in the Show/hide regions in results panel, the tab indicates that you are viewing filtered region results.
With multi-region search, you cannot create connectors. You can use the saved searches feature in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Logging, however, a saved search can only save the query aspect of the logging search. Multiple regions that you select are not saved.
