Graylog and Ubuntu 22.04 Jammy Jellyfish


Has anyone confirmed that the current release of Graylog (4.2.9 as of writing this) is supported with Ubuntu 22.04 released ~2 weeks ago? I would like to schedule a distro upgrade but I do have concerns about the continued incompatibility with current releases of Elasticsearch and general compatibility with the Linux kernel changes, 20.04.4 LTS using kernel 5.13 vs 22.04 using 5.15 which included several file system handling changes/enhancements.

If anyone has done a distro upgrade on a system with a live instance of Graylog server (or at least on a ES node with ES pinned at 7.10, which is EOL in 6 days…) I would really appreciate your feedback on how the process went.

As recently as yesterday, I logged into my Graylog VM and was given an alert that a newer version of Graylog was available. All I did was run ‘sudo apt-get update’, then ran ‘sudo apt-get upgrade’, then rebooted the VM under ESXi 6.5. The result was that Ubuntu 20.04 LTS server was upgraded and Graylog was upgraded. The alert was cleared and Graylog is running fine.

Here is what shows up this morning.

graylog-vm1:~$ uname -a
Linux graylog-vm1 5.4.0-109-generic #123-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 8 09:10:54 UTC 2022 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Getting Started - Graylog v4.2.9+f0d8298

Hope this is of some use to you.

Thanks Greg! Are you still pinned to ES 7.10 or below?
