Ansible Role: Logstash Forwarder

Build Status

An Ansible Role that installs Logstash Forwarder on RedHat/CentOS or Debian/Ubuntu.

Note: This role is well-tested on Debian/Ubuntu, but is still undergoing development for RedHat/CentOS. You've been warned!

Requirements

Role Variables

Available variables are listed below, along with default values (see defaults/main.yml):

logstash_ssl_dir: /etc/pki/logstash
logstash_forwarder_ssl_certificate_file: logstash-forwarder-example.crt

The location and filename of the SSL certificate logstash-forwarder will use to authenticate to the logstash server. For the logstash_forwarder_ssl_certificate_file, you can provide a path relative to the role directory, or an absolute path to the file.

logstash_forwarder_files:
  - paths:
      - /var/log/messages
      - /var/log/auth.log
    fields:
      type: syslog
