The LogReduce® algorithm uses fuzzy logic to cluster messages together based on string and pattern similarity. Use the LogReduce button and operator to quickly assess activity patterns for things like a range of devices or traffic on a website.
The summarize operator has been renamed the logreduce operator, to match the LogReduce button on the Messages tab. Both operators will continue to work in search queries as synonyms for a limited time. We recommend that you rewrite saved queries replacing summarize with LogReduce.

In this section, we'll introduce the following concepts:
📄️ LogReduce Operator
Allows you to quickly assess activity patterns for things like a range of devices or traffic on a website.
📄️ Detect Patterns with LogReduce
LogReduce groups messages with similar structures and common repeated text strings into signatures, providing a quick investigative view, or snapshot, for the keywords or time range provided.
📄️ Influence the LogReduce Outcome
You can influence the algorithm by editing a signature to make the results more general, or see more granular results by splitting a signature.
📄️ LogReduce Relevance Column
The LogReduce Relevance column displays a numerical score for a signature, predicting which signatures could be most meaningful.
