Woodchuck

A lightweight log shipper for logstash written in Ruby.

Inspired by beaver and logstash itself. Fair warning, it's a work in progress ;)

Installation

Install as a gem:

$ gem install woodchuck

And then execute:

$ woodchuck

Usage

woodchuck --files /var/log/syslog,/var/log/apache/**/*,/var/log/nginx/*.log --output redis

Options

* -h, --help      - Help!
* -l, --log-level - Log verbosity. [ debug, warn, info, error, fatal ]
* -p, --paths     - A comma-separated list of files to watch for changes (file globbing is accepted).
* -o, --output    - The output to send to [ stdout, redis ]

Coming soon

  • Handy config format for multiple files and outputs
  • regular expressions (why not!)
  • ZeroMQ and TCP output support
  • Performance enhancements
