Send Apache Logs to Minio
The following services are required to be set up correctly:
Also, if you have installed Fluentd through RubyGems (without
td-agent), please install the
$ sudo fluent-gem install fluent-plugin-s3
In this example, we use the access log file as an input source, so save the following
NOTE: If you are using the standalone version of Fluentd, use
Before proceeding, please confirm that the access log file has proper file permission. If the log file is not readable by the
fluentd, the rest of this article will not work.
Now let's add settings for storing the incoming data in your Minio server. Since Minio is compatible with Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), we can use the
out_s3plugin to connect to the server.
aws_key_id ACCESS_KEY # The access key for Minio
aws_sec_key SECRET_KEY # The secret key for Minio
s3_bucket BUCKET_NAME # The bucket to store the log data
s3_endpoint ENDPOINT # The endpoint URL (like "http://localhost:9000/")
s3_region us-east-1 # See the region settings of your Minio server
path logs/ # This prefix is added to each file
force_path_style true # This prevents AWS SDK from breaking endpoint URL
time_slice_format %Y%m%d%H%M # This timestamp is added to each file name
timekey 60m # Flush the accumulated chunks every hour
timekey_wait 1m # Wait for 60 seconds before flushing
timekey_use_utc true # Use this option if you prefer UTC timestamps
chunk_limit_size 256m # The maximum size of each chunk
After adding the settings to the conf file, please restart the Fluentd daemon.
curlto generate some log data for testing:
$ curl http://localhost/
Or you can use the Apache Bench for the bulk request generation:
$ ab -n 100 -c 10 http://localhost/
Wait until the data gets flushed from the buffer (you can adjust the flush interval using the
timekey_waitoptions above). Then you will see the aggregated log data on Minio:
