Sending Log Events

To send new events to Logs Management app, you have two ways to connect - using Elasticsearch API or using syslog.

  • HTTP / HTTPS (ports 80 / 443), by using the Elasticsearch API on /
  • UDP / TCP / RELP / TLS, by using the syslog receiver on /
  • UDP / TCP by using the socket receiver for JSON on /

All options work with log shippers such as Logstash, Logagent, Fluentd, rsyslog or syslog-ng. And you can always write your own application or script that works with Elasticsearch or syslog or Apache Flume or really any other tool that can send data to Sematext's Elasticsearch API.
