Sematext Fluent Bit Integration
In order to make Fluent Bit send logs to your Sematext App, you need to configure it with the Elasticsearch plugin and the correct Sematext endpoint by specifying:
Host: logsene-receiver.sematext.com / logsene-receiver.eu.sematext.com
Port: 80 / 443
Index: Logsene App Token
tls: On / Off
**TLS should be set to On for SSL/HTTPS, for HTTP this should be set to Off.
Tailing a File¶
To send the contents of the file /tmp/logfile.log, you would edit your configuration file to include the following:
[INPUT] Name tail Tag sematext Path /tmp/logfile.log [OUTPUT] Name es Match sematext Host logsene-receiver.sematext.com Port 443 tls On Index LOGSENE_APP_TOKEN Type _doc
To get started quickly, you can simply download Fluent Bit and install it. Then you would edit the default configuration file /etc/fluent-bit/fluent-bit.conf adding in the sections above, before starting Fluent Bit as follows:
/opt/fluent-bit/bin/fluent-bit -c /etc/fluent-bit/fluent-bit.conf
After it starts, log entries from the specified file will be shipped to your Sematext Logs App and you can then start searching them within Sematext.
