Deploy this integration to ship logs from your OpenShift cluster to Logz.io. This integration will deploy the default daemonset, which sends only container logs while ignoring all containers with “openshift” namespace.

Before you begin, you’ll need:

  • Working Openshift cluster
  • Openshift CLI (oc) installed on your machine
Create monitoring namespace
oc create namespace monitoring
Store your Logz.io credentials
oc create secret generic logzio-logs-secret \
  --from-literal=logzio-log-shipping-token='<<LOG-SHIPPING-TOKEN>>' \
  --from-literal=logzio-log-listener='https://<<LISTENER-HOST>>:8071' \
  -n monitoring

Your Logz.io log shipping token directs the data securely to your Logz.io Log Management account. The default token is auto-populated in the examples when you’re logged into the Logz.io app as an Admin. Manage your tokens. Replace <<LISTENER-HOST>> with the host for your region. For example, listener.logz.io if your account is hosted on AWS US East, or listener-nl.logz.io if hosted on Azure West Europe.

Deploy the resources
oc create -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/logzio/logzio-openshift/main/resources.yaml \
&& oc adm policy add-scc-to-user privileged -z fluentd \
&& oc delete pod -l k8s-app=fluentd-logzio
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.

Deploy this integration to ship logs from your OpenShift cluster to Logz.io. This integration will deploy the daemonset with your custom configuration.

oc create secret generic logzio-logs-secret \
  --from-literal=logzio-log-shipping-token='<<LOG-SHIPPING-TOKEN>>' \

Specifies which plugin to use as the backend.
LOGZIO_BUFFER_PATH Default: /var/log/Fluentd-buffers/stackdriver.buffer
Path of the buffer.
LOGZIO_OVERFLOW_ACTION Default: block
Controls the behavior when the queue becomes full.
LOGZIO_CHUNK_LIMIT_SIZE Default: 2M
Maximum size of a chunk allowed
LOGZIO_QUEUE_LIMIT_LENGTH Default: 6
Maximum length of the output queue.
LOGZIO_FLUSH_INTERVAL Default: 5s
Interval, in seconds, to wait before invoking the next buffer flush.
LOGZIO_RETRY_MAX_INTERVAL Default: 30s

LOGZIO_FLUSH_THREAD_COUNT Default: 2
Number of threads to flush the buffer.
LOGZIO_LOG_LEVEL Default: info

INCLUDE_NAMESPACE Default: ""(All namespaces)
Use if you wish to send logs from specific k8s namespaces, space delimited. Should be in the following format:
kubernetes.var.log.containers.**_<<NAMESPACE-TO-INCLUDE>>_** kubernetes.var.log.containers.**_<<ANOTHER-NAMESPACE>>_**.

The above variables can be edited directly in the DaemonSet without the Configmap.

Add additional configuration in the Configmap

If you wish to make any further configuration changes, go to the ConfigMap section of the file and make the changes that you need.

Deploy the resources
oc create -f /path/to/your/resources.yaml \
