How to install Graylog Collector sidecar using tar.gz file


(Ganeshbabu Ramamoorthy) #1

Hi All,

I am trying to install Graylog collector sidecar using collector-sidecar-0.1.4.tar.gz but I am unable to do the setup.

Also I couldn’t find any reference documentation related to this setup and I am trying to do custom installation out of it.

When I untar the collector-sidecar-0.1.4.tar.gz file I am getting the graylog-collector-sidecar.exe file in the path (~/collector-sidecar/0.1.4/windows/amd64) How do I setup the graylog collector sidecar with the .exe?

I just execute the .exe in powershell and I got the following response,

time="2017-12-21T16:48:59Z" level=info msg="[winlogbeat] Starting (exec driver)"

But the files are installed in the default path and I want to install the collector sidecar in the specific directory.

Is it possible in the collector-sidecar-0.1.4.tar.gz?

Please kindly share your thoughts and any reference documentation.

Thanks,
