Create flag in Graylog

(Rafaliwaniak) #1

Hi Graylog Masters :wink:

I setup few machines to send logs to my Graylog Web input. However I consider how can I create kind of “flag tool” in my masterpice. Below is general concept of my input messages:

08:00 AM - Host 1: log in
08:10 AM - Host 2: log in
08:11 AM - Host 3: log in
10:00 AM - Host 1: log out
10:10 AM - Host 2: log out
11:00 AM - Host 1: log in

I’d like to have a monitor where can I see how many machines are online and offline now. In my example at 9:00 I would have 3 green (Host 1,2 and 3 are logged in), at 10:30 I would have 1 green and 1 red, and at 11:30 I would have 2 green and 1 red. That’s all.

I had an idea to store only last message for each machine. As I said previously - kind of flag. How can I managed this? Do you have any idea? Can Graylog manage such an issue?

Kind regards,

With vanilla Graylog that is not possible. You would need to use the API or extend Graylog with a plugin.
