Installs a graylog2 server and web interface from source.



  • elasticsearch
  • java
  • mongodb
  • runit


Only tested on Ubuntu.


Recipes are written in a modular way to support composable components. The cookbook provides these composed services by default:

  • server - setup a standard graylog2 server sans web interface
  • web_interface - setup the graylog2 web interface

Low-level recipes:

  • _group - install graylog2 group
  • _server_config - install server configuration
  • _server_dependencies - install required server dependencies
  • _server_runit - setup service with runit
  • _server_source - install server from source
  • _user - install graylog2 user
  • _web_config - install web interface configuration
  • _web_cronjobs - install cron jobs
  • _web_dependencies - install required web interface dependencies
  • _web_passenger - setup additional resources for passenger, like restart
  • _web_set_passenger - set passenger version
  • _web_source - install web interface from source


Either use one of the pre-composed recipes or compose your own versions from the low-level recipes.
