By default, all searches are performed for the past four hours. You can customize this by modifying the /scalyr/logs configuration file. Add a defaultSearchTimeSpan property to the JSON file. The value can be any time string between 5 minutes and 4 hours; e.g. "10 minutes" or "2 hours". If you have a large log volume, using a shorter time span can speed up searches.


defaultSearchTimeSpan: "20 minutes"
