Problem description

As an admin of Graylog environments where installation and configuration of the Sidecar is delegated to various teams, I would like the ability to view a collector's IP address alongside the other collector status information. This would be useful in cases where a collector may not have an accurate name (e.g. "localhost") and/or I need to assist with troubleshooting an issue.

I have set up a logger for, so I can dig in to get an IP if absolutely needed, but it would be much more convenient to have that info displayed with the other collector info.


  • Graylog Version: 2.0.3
  • Elasticsearch Version: 2.2.0
  • MongoDB Version: 2.6.12
  • Operating System: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.7
  • Browser version: Firefox 47

Forgot to mention: you have to set send_status: true in the Sidecar config then you can find the IP on the collector status page.
