Setup

You’ll need: s3:ListBucket and s3:GetObject permissions for the required S3 bucket

Configuration
  1. Send your logs to an S3 bucket

    Logz.io fetches your VPC Flow logs from an S3 bucket. VPC Flow logs are not stored in S3 by default, so you’ll need to set up AWS to send your Flow logs to S3.

    For help with this, see Publishing Flow Logs to Amazon S3 from AWS.

  2. Add the S3 bucket information

    To use the S3 fetcher, fill out the S3 bucket information on the Amazon VPC log shipping page. You must be logged in to Logz.io.

  3. Check Logz.io for your logs

    Give your logs a few minutes to get from your system to ours, and then open Kibana.

    If you still don’t see your logs, see log shipping troubleshooting.
