I’m importing a few day old logs, to get familiar with grafana / loki / log parsing
apache access log → promtail → loki → grafana
I have apache access logs, parsed, verified, and I update the timestamp. (The timestamp parsed correctly) (Troubleshooting | Grafana Labs)
There are right labels listed. The validator tells me it found streams. The query lists no entry.
Tested with updated log entries: I overwritten the time in the log lines with the current datetime, and the entries shown immediately. (Also, not overwriting timestamps worked)
Reason: There is an indexing delay for older logs in loki. (1-5 minutes)
Everything is working fine, be patient, or disable the timestamp update.
