Recipe Nginx To Elasticsearch
Looking to get data out of nginx into elasticsearch? You can do that with fluentd in 10 minutes!
Here is how:
1
$ gem install fluentd
2
$ gem install fluent-plugin-elasticsearch
3
$ touch fluentd.conf
Copied!
fluentd.conf should look like this (just copy and paste this into fluentd.conf):
1
<source>
2
@type tail
3
path /var/log/httpd-access.log #...or where you placed your Apache access log
4
pos_file /var/log/td-agent/httpd-access.log.pos # This is where you record file position
5
tag nginx.access #fluentd tag!
6
format nginx # Do you have a custom format? You can write your own regex.
7
</source>
8
9
<match **>
10
@type elasticsearch
11
logstash_format true
12
host <hostname> #(optional; default="localhost")
13
port <port> #(optional; default=9200)
14
index_name <index name> #(optional; default=fluentd)
15
type_name <type name> #(optional; default=fluentd)
16
</match>
Copied!
After that, you can start fluentd and everything should work:
1
$ fluentd -c fluentd.conf
Copied!
Of course, this is just a quick example. If you are thinking of running fluentd in production, consider using td-agent, the enterprise version of Fluentd packaged and maintained by Treasure Data, Inc..
