This integration uses Filebeat in a Docker container to forward logs from Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) to Logz.io.

Setup

To use docker-collector-logs, you’ll set environment variables when you run the container. The Docker logs directory and docker.sock are mounted to the container, allowing Filebeat to collect the logs and metadata.

Deploy the Docker collector
  1. Pull the Docker image

    Download the logzio/docker-collector-logs image.

    docker pull logzio/docker-collector-logs
    
  2. Run the Docker image

    For a complete list of options, see the parameters below the code block. 👇

    docker run -d --name=docker-collector-logs \
    --env LOGZIO_TOKEN="<<SHIPPING-TOKEN>>" \
    --env LOGZIO_URL="<<LISTENER-HOST>>:5015" \
    -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
    -v /var/lib/docker/containers:/var/lib/docker/containers \
    logzio/docker-collector-logs
    

    Parameters

    LOGZIO_TOKEN
    Your Logz.io account token. Replace <<SHIPPING-TOKEN>> with the token of the account you want to ship to.
    LOGZIO_URL
    Your Logz.io listener URL and port. Replace <<LISTENER-HOST>> with your region’s listener host (for example, listener.logz.io). For more information on finding your account’s region, see Account region.
  3. Check Logz.io for your logs

    Give your logs some time to get from your system to ours, and then open Kibana.
