Made by Alessandro Franceschi / Lab42

Official site: http://www.example42.com

Official git repository: http://github.com/example42/puppet-logstash

Released under the terms of Apache 2 License.

This module requires functions provided by the Example42 Puppi module.

For detailed info about the logic and usage patterns of Example42 modules read README.usage on Example42 main modules set.

USAGE - Module Specific Parameters

  • Launch in agent mode (default) with extra parameters to enable the web interface class { "logstash": run_options => 'web --backend elasticsearch:///', }

  • Create a configuration file based on the provided template. logstash::config { 'local_search': template => '/[path]/', }

    USAGE - Basic management

    • Install logstash using your distro package, if available

        class { "logstash": }
      
    • Install the latest logstash version from upstream site

        class { "logstash":
          install             => "source",
        }
      
    • Install the latest logstash version from upstream site using puppi. You will have a 'puppi deploy logstash' to deploy and update logstash.

        class { "logstash":
          install             => "puppi",
        }
      
    • Install source from a custom url to a custom install_destination path. The following parameters apply both for "source" and "puppi" install methods. Puppi method may be used to manage deployment updates (given the $install_source is updated). By default install_source is set to upstream developer and install_destination to Web (App) server document root Pre and post installation commands may be already defined (check logstash/manifests/params.pp) override them only if needed. Url_check and url_pattern are used for application checks, if monitor is enabled. Override only if needed.

        class { "logstash":
          install             => "source",
          install_source      => "http://deploy.example42.com/logstash/logstash-jar",
        }
      
    • Remove logstash

        class { "logstash":
          absent => true
        }
      
    • Enable auditing without without making changes on existing logstash configuration files

        class { "logstash":
          audit_only => true
        }
      

    USAGE - Overrides and Customizations

    • Use custom sources for main config file

        class { "logstash":
          source => [ "puppet:///modules/lab42/logstash/wp-config.php-${hostname}" , "puppet:///modules/lab42/logstash/wp-config.php" ], 
        }
      
    • Use custom source directory for the whole configuration dir

        class { "logstash":
          source_dir       => "puppet:///modules/lab42/logstash/conf/",
          source_dir_purge => false, # Set to true to purge any existing file not present in $source_dir
        }
      
    • Use custom template for main config file

        class { "logstash":
          template => "example42/logstash/wp-config.php.erb",      
        }
      
    • Automaticallly include a custom subclass

        class { "logstash:"
          my_class => 'logstash::example42',
        }
      

    USAGE - Example42 extensions management

    • Activate puppi (recommended, but disabled by default) Note that this option requires the usage of Example42 puppi module

        class { "logstash": 
          puppi    => true,
        }
      
    • Activate puppi and use a custom puppi_helper template (to be provided separately with a puppi::helper define ) to customize the output of puppi commands

        class { "logstash":
          puppi        => true,
          puppi_helper => "myhelper", 
        }
      
    • Activate automatic monitoring (recommended, but disabled by default) This option requires the usage of Example42 monitor and relevant monitor tools modules

        class { "logstash":
          monitor      => true,
          monitor_tool => [ "nagios" , "puppi" ],
        }
