The web-based Data Scrubbing routine that is referenced by this document is accessed via the User Menu -> "Log Processing" of the DataSet site.
In function, it is similar to configuring redaction rules for the Scalyr Agent (for more on that topic, see Redaction Rules and the video at Configuring Redaction). While the Scalyr Agent's redaction rules apply to logs uploaded by a single instance of the Agent, Data Scrubbing can be applied to multiple log sources.
In either configuration, scrubbed data is not counted against the account's log volume since:
- The Scalyr Agent performs redaction before logs are sent to DataSet
- Data scrubbing via the DataSet site occurs before the log volume is tallied
