Sending Syslog to Loki

Getting Syslog messages into Loki #

So, now that we’ve figured out Where our logs were going1… lets push the rest of the logs into the stack

Ship them to promtail with some buffering #

The rsyslog site’s guide for shipping logs2 recommends the following configuration for nodes:

*.*  action(type="omfwd" target="" port="10514"
            protocol="tcp" action.resumeRetryCount="100" 
            queue.type="linkedList" queue.size="10000")

So, why not just make a few simple template files to push out to nodetypes

  1. It REALLY helps to point promtail at the right loki instance if you wish loki to ingest aforementioned logs. sigh ↩︎
