Before you begin, you’ll need:
- Stormshield syslog server configured to send logs in legacy format over port tcp/6514
- Filebeat 7 installed
- root access
Download the Logz.io public certificate to your Filebeat server
For HTTPS shipping, download the Logz.io public certificate to your certificate authority folder.
sudo curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/logzio/public-certificates/master/AAACertificateServices.crt --create-dirs -o /etc/pki/tls/certs/COMODORSADomainValidationSecureServerCA.crt
Open the Filebeat configuration file (/etc/filebeat/filebeat.yml) with your preferred text editor.
Copy and paste the code block below, overwriting the previous contents, to replace the general configuration with the following settings:
# ... filebeat.inputs: - type: tcp max_message_size: 10MiB host: "0.0.0.0:6514" fields: logzio_codec: plain # Your Logz.io account token. You can find your token at # https://app.logz.io/#/dashboard/settings/manage-accounts token: <<LOG-SHIPPING-TOKEN>> type: stormshield fields_under_root: true encoding: utf-8 ignore_older: 3h # ... For Filebeat 7 only ... filebeat.registry.path: /var/lib/filebeat processors: - rename: fields: - from: "agent" to: "filebeat_agent" ignore_missing: true - rename: fields: - from: "log.file.path" to: "source" ignore_missing: true
<<LOG-SHIPPING-TOKEN>> with the token of the account you want to ship to.
Set Logz.io as the output
Still in the same configuration file, check if Logz.io is already an output. If not, add it now.
# ... output.logstash: hosts: ["<<LISTENER-HOST>>:5015"] ssl: certificate_authorities: ['/etc/pki/tls/certs/COMODORSADomainValidationSecureServerCA.crt']
<<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.
One last validation - make sure Logz.io is the only output and appears only once. If the file has other outputs, remove them.
Start or restart Filebeat for the changes to take effect.
Check Logz.io for your logs
Give your logs some time to get from your system to ours, and then open Kibana.
