# Log Filters¶

Filters, configured in logging.yaml allow you to create rules which may be applied to log definitions, limiting the entries included in the log output. This may be useful if your Traffic Server nodes receive many events which you have no need to log or analyze, or you wish to establish separate logs with their own rotation policies to more rapidly perform log analysis for a subset of events.

Configuration options are covered in detail in the Filters section of logging.yaml, so this page is currently left as a reference to the feature’s existence.
