A simple daemon that reads a file (tail -f style) and sends every line as GELF 1.1 message via UDP. (Basically a combination of https://github.com/DECK36/go-log2amqp and https://github.com/DECK36/go-amqp2gelf, but without the AMQP transport.)
Intended for nginx and apache access logs – so it does some special character
encoding/escaping for that format (because
\xXX is not valid JSON).
Usage of ./go-log2gelf: -file="/var/log/syslog": filename to watch -n=false: Quit after file is read, do not wait for more data, do not read/write state -port=12201: Graylog2 GELF/UDP port -server="localhost": Graylog2 server -v=false: Verbose output
ubuntu directory contains an example how to package this tool:
build.sh will fetch all sources, compile them, and use
fpm to build a Debian package
containing the binary, the configuration, and the upstart config.
