Send parsed logs to stdout

Output Plugin: Standard output (stdout)

This plugin writes the result of Logagent parser to the standard output stream (stdout) and is activated by default.

Following message formats are supported:

  • Line delimited JSON (default)
  • Pretty JSON (--pretty command line flag)
  • YAML (--yaml command-line flag)

Configuration

input:
  stdin: true
  files: 
    - /var/log/**/*.log

output:
  stdout: yaml
  # use 'pretty' for pretty json and 'ldjson' for line delimited json
  # stdout: pretty
  # stdout: ldjson

Start logagent

logagent --config stdout.yaml

Command-line usage

cat test.log | logagent --yaml
cat test.log | logagent --pretty
cat test.log | logagent --ldjson
