Input codecs failures


(sander van der Laan) #1

Hello,

I’m setting up my first graylog install. I’m sending syslog messages from a sophos utm to the graylog server, it’s receiving them but i think its not processing them.
In the Metrics I see that all the incoming messages generate failures:

org.graylog2.inputs.codecs.SyslogCodec.59e88eb57220f7032d8d1002.failures
Meter
Total:
12,183 events
Mean:
28.68 events/second
1 minute avg:
29.7 events/second
5 minute avg:
37.92 events/second
15 minute avg:
51.73 events/second

I tried both tcp and udp, am i doing something wrong?

Hej @fooc

try to switch to a RAW/Plaintext input and check how the messages are formatted. Most vendors say that the their appliances send syslog but that is something homegrown.
