Hello && Welcome

I would really like to help but your question is kind of open-ended. With the lack of information about you environment it hard to give a direct answer to your question. For example:

With a better understanding how you set up your graylog server or the way you ingesting logs would help. I could simple say use Graylog Sidecar.

Perhaps that will help.

Thanks for response . I think i got the solution. Due to my application is frontend one , which did not generate log files. So i can use below GELF approach to send logs directly to graylog as a Service or ajax call .

curl -X POST -H ‘Content-Type: application/json’ -d ‘{ “version”: “1.1”, “host”: “”, “short_message”: “A short message”, “level”: 5, “_some_info”: “foo” }’ ‘

Oh nice, and thanks for post your resolution. Please mark it a solved so it can help others for future searches.

Good Job :+1:
