What is "loki-backend"?

I am wondering after deploying by Loki Helm chart in Kubernetes

What is this loki-backend? Where does it fit in the Loki Architecture? Thanks!

The diagram is a bit outdated. The backend is a new target that consists of ruler, compactor, and something else I don’t quite remember at the moment. You also can opt to use in-memory cache instead of memcached unless you need it.

Thanks @tonyswumac ! :smiley:

I basically want to understand deeper how Loki works. I opened a “feature request” at New architecture diagram · Issue #10361 · grafana/loki · GitHub

Hopefully the Loki architecture diagram could be updated soon!
