You’ll need: root access

  1. Run the rsyslog configuration script

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

    Replace <LISTENER-URL> with your region’s listener URL. 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 "<ACCOUNT-TOKEN>" -l "<LISTENER-URL>"
    
  2. 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.
