Description Build Status

A simple cookbook for setting up a server to stream logs into Papertrail via a secure TCP connection.

Requirements

Built to run on systems with Rsyslog installed. Tested on Ubuntu 12.04

Attributes

['papertrail']['port'] = The Papertrail log destination port number (required)
['papertrail']['host'] = The Papertrail host address (defaults to logs)
['papertrail']['syslog_selector'] = The syslog tags and types to stream into Papertrail (defaults to "*.*")
['papertrail']['resume_retry_count'] = The number of times to retry the sending of failed messages (defaults to unlimited)
['papertrail']['queue_disk_space'] = The maximum disk space allowed for queues (default to 100M)
['papertrail']['enable_tls'] = Whether to encrypt all log traffic going into Papertrail (default to True)
['papertrail']['certificate_src'] = The URL of the certificate file on the Papertrail server
['papertrail']['certificate_checksum'] = The sha256 checksum for the Papertrail certificate file

Usage

First, make sure you set the ['papertrail']['port'] attribute in your Role/Environment, to the destination port created in Papertrail. Then include the papertrail::default recipe in you run list to start streaming all syslog entries to Papertrail.

Tailing log files

This functionality is currently not available, but will be provided via the Opscode Rsyslog cookbook (included as a dependency), where there is an open pull request for it at the time of this writing.
