Simple Message Based Central Logging System in python

For starters, used mysql for db. But can be replaced with ElasticSearch as to enhance performance on scaling.

Setup

  • Clone the repo
  • install dependecies
pip install -r requirements.txt
  • Setup Flask env
export FLASK_APP=server.py
  • Create config file
cp config_example.py config.py

Configuration

  1. Add all necessary config data in config.py

  2. Create a database with the provided name and table accordingly with the column (client, log_level, message, created_at).

Execution

  1. Run the
python zmqclient.py

on the client systems, i.e. various different machines where the logs are scattered

  1. Run the
python zmqserver.py

on our central server where we want to centralise the logging system

  1. (Optional) To debug run :

    export FLASK_DEBUG=1
    
  2. Run the Flask web server

flask run
  1. Open localhost:5000 on local system and view it as a table

  2. To view statistics, go to localhost:5000/stats

Server Stats

To view server server stats, just visit localhost:5000/stats and the data can be refreshed by clicking on the refresh button.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
