Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

Specifying log delivery using the Console

Using the Amazon Web Services Management Console you can create a Redis (cluster mode disabled) cluster by following the steps at Creating a Redis (cluster mode disabled) cluster (Console) or create a Redis (cluster mode enabled) cluster using the steps at Creating a Redis (cluster mode enabled) cluster (Console). In either case, you configure log delivery by doing the following;

  1. Under Advanced Redis settings, choose Logs and then check either Slow logs or Engine logs.

  2. Under Log format, choose either Text or JSON.

  3. Under Destination Type, choose either CloudWatch Logs or Kinesis Firehose.

  4. Under Log destination, choose either Create new and enter either your Amazon S3 bucket name, CloudWatchLogs log group name or your Kinesis Data Firehose stream name, or choose Select existing and then choose either your CloudWatch Logs group name or your Kinesis Data Firehose stream name,

When modifying a cluster:

You can choose to either enable/disable log delivery or change either the destination type, format or destination:

  1. Sign in to the Console and open the ElastiCache console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/elasticache/.

  2. From the navigation pane, choose Redis clusters.

  3. From the list of clusters, choose the cluster you want to modify. Choose the Cluster name and not the checkbox beside it.

  4. On the Cluster name page, choose the Logs tab.

  5. To enable/disable slow logs, choose either Enable slow logs or Disable slow logs.

  6. To enable/disable engine logs, choose either Enable engine logs or Disable engine logs.

  7. To change your configuration, choose either Modify slow logs or Modify engine logs:

    • Under Destination Type, choose either CloudWatch Logs or Kinesis Firehose.

    • Under Log destination, choose either Create new and enter either your CloudWatchLogs log group name or your Kinesis Data Firehose stream name. Or choose Select existing and then choose either your CloudWatchLogs log group name or your Kinesis Data Firehose stream name.
