Lightweight open source log shipper
Logagent is a modern, open-source, light-weight log shipper with out of the box and extensible log parsing, on-disk buffering, secure transport and bulk indexing to Elasticsearch and Logsene. Its low memory footprint and low CPU overhead makes it suitable for deploying on edge nodes and devices, while its ability to parse and structure logs makes it a great Logstash alternative.
Setting up log shipping was so hard with any other tool … but with Sematext Logagent it worked like magic! And your support is like mind blowing!
Easy setupInstalls within seconds and parses a number of popular log formats out of the box.
Low OverheadLow memory footprint, async I/O, and tiny CPU overhead makes it suitable for edge servers, IoT devices, sensors, etc.
Works with ElasticsearchBuilt-in Elasticsearch output lets you ship logs to Elasticsearch or Logsene.
Log RoutingRoute logs from different sets of log files to the right Elasticsearch index or Logsene app based on regular expressions matching log file names.
Log Structure ParsingAuto-detect and parse log formats for a number of applications out of the box; extensible with your own log parsing rules.
Log EnrichmentAuto-tag logs with source file name, IP address and hostname; GeoIP enrichment.
Log Rotation HandlingProperly handles log file rotation; keeps track of log files being tailed and its position within them, even across restarts.
Secure & Reliable Data TransferAll data is shipped via HTTPS; in event of network failure data is persisted and re-transmitted to avoid data loss.
Sensitive Data MaskingHide sensitive data from the prying eyes by masking it before it is shipped, while still being able to look it up.
Heroku SupportBuilt-in Heroku Log drain support makes shipping logs from Heroku a breeze.
Cloud Foundry SupportBuilt-in Cloud Foundry Log drain support allows easy integration with Pivotal, IBM Bluemix, GE Predix, CenturyLink Cloud, etc.
Built-in Syslog ListenerBuilt-in syslog listener can receive logs via UDP, parse them and forward them via HTTP(S) to Elasticsearch and Logsene.
Works with STDIN/STDOUTAlso runs as command-line tool, reads standard input and writes to standard output or to Elasticsearch – great for piping and building ad-hoc data pipelines with Unix tools.
Open source, Apache LicensedCompletely open sourced on Github and released under a liberal Apache Software License v2.
