Hi everyone, I have a fastapi application and already setup opentelemtry and signoz for metrics/traces. I also want to add logs in application and display in signoz. Can anyone help how to do this?

The steps will be similar to sending logs to any OpenTelemetry collector. If you're trying to add logging for the first time that would generally meaning adding otel-sdk calls to send logs to the collector, but if you want to connect existing logs into OpenTelemetry (and SigNoz), the recommended path is using filelog to read a logs file into a collector, more detail on this path here.
