Receive data via GELF / Graylog protocol

Input Plugin: GELF

Plugin to receive logs with GELF protocol v1.1 via UDP. GELF (Graylog Extended Log Format) is a log format that avoids the shortcomings of classic plain syslog.

Installation

Install graygelf module

npm i -g graygelf
# sudo npm i -g --unsafe-perm graygelf 

Configuration

# Global options
input:
  gelf: 
    module: input-gelf
    port: 12100
    host: 0.0.0.0
output:
  # print parsed logs in YAML format to stdout   
  stdout: yaml 

Start Logagent

logagent --config myconfig.yml

Ship logs to GELF input through a simple snapshot:

var log = require('graygelf')({
    host: 'localhost',
    port: 12100
  })
log.info.a('short', 'full', { foo: 'bar' })
