Archlinux journals to Loki

I’m trying out hosted logs Grafana Cloud and I’m absolutely puzzled how to upload my systemd journals.

Any tips / ideas / tutorials please?

You can push directly in OTLP format (so you don’t need Loki exporter):

Grafana guys has also own OTEL collector distribution: Alloy - Grafana Alloy | OpenTelemetry Collector distribution (but I’m not big fan of that).

Thanks, I ended up using vector as OpenTelemetry looked to hectic to me.

Now I’m struggling to sanity check if any logs are being ingested:
