Guided configuration

Before you begin, you’ll need: root access

Run the rsyslog configuration script

Replace <<SHIPPING-TOKEN>> with the token of the account you want to ship to.

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.

curl -sLO https://github.com/logzio/logzio-shipper/raw/master/dist/logzio-rsyslog.tar.gz \
  && tar xzf logzio-rsyslog.tar.gz \
  && sudo rsyslog/install.sh -t linux -a "<<SHIPPING-TOKEN>>" -l "<<LISTENER-HOST>>"
Check Logz.io for your logs

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

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