You should use the imfile module to transmit the contents of records at the host through Syslog. The imfile module works very similar to Logstash's dossier enter and helps dossier rotation and tracks the presently processed access within the dossier. To ship a selected dossier through RSyslog we have to permit the imfile module after which specify the dossier to be processed. Let's replace our /etc/rsyslog. conf dossier (or in the event that your platform helps the /etc/rsyslog. d listing then you definitely can create a file-specific configuration dossier in that directory). $Modload imfile $InputFileName ? /var/log/apache2/error. log? $InputFileTag ? apache? $InputFileStateFile ? /var/spool/rsyslog/apache_error_state? $InputRunFileMonitor the 1st line, beginning with $Modload, rather a lot the imfile module. the subsequent strains specify the dossier be monitored, the following /var/log/apache2/error. log, tags those messages in RSyslog with apache and specifies a kingdom dossier for RSyslog to trace the present endpoint processed within the dossier. finally, the $InputRunFileMonitor line initiates dossier tracking for this dossier. Now, as soon as you could have restarted RSyslog, it is going to be tracking this dossier and sending any new strains through Syslog to our Logstash example (assuming we have configured RSyslog as recommended within the prior section). Tip you will discover the whole RSyslog documentation at http://www. rsyslog. com/. Configuring Syslog-NG when mostly changed in smooth distributions through RSyslog, there are nonetheless loads of structures that use Syslog-NG together with Gentoo, FreeBSD, Arch Linux and HP UX. Like RSyslog, Syslog-NG is an absolutely featured Syslog server yet its configuration is a little more giant than what we wanted for RSyslog. Syslog-NG configuration is available in 4 varieties: resource statements - the place log messages come from. vacation spot statements - the place to ship log messages. clear out statements - tips to clear out or procedure log messages. log statements - activities that mix resource, vacation spot and clear out statements. Let's glance within an current Syslog-NG configuration. Its configuration dossier is mostly /etc/syslog-ng. conf or /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng. conf. you will often discover a line anything like this inside of: resource s_src { unix-dgram(? /dev/log? ); internal(); file(? /proc/kmsg? program_override(? kernel? )); }; This simple resource assertion collects Syslog messages from the host, kernel messages and any inner messages to Syslog-NG. this is often frequently the default resource on such a lot distributions and systems. in case you do not see this resource your Syslog-NG server is probably not amassing Syslog messages and also you should still validate its configuration. you may as well see extra resource statements, for instance accumulating messages through the community from different hosts. We then have to outline a brand new vacation spot for our Logstash server. we will be able to do that with a line like so: vacation spot d_logstash { tcp(? 10. zero. zero. 1? port(5144)); }; This tells Syslog-NG to ship messages to IP tackle 10. zero. zero. 1 on port 5144 through TCP. in case you have area identify answer you may in its place specify our Logstash server's host identify. finally, we are going to have to specify a log motion to mix our resource or resources and our vacation spot log { source(s_src); destination(d_logstash); }; this can ship all Syslog messages from the s_src resource to the d_logstash vacation spot that's our vital Logstash server.
