Installation and Graylog Client Configuration

(Sandeep Singh) #1

1: successfully installed Graylog on centos7 platform where i can access graylog Dashboard.

2: But unable to add my 4 remote server which is based on Linux but hosted at different data center so please suggest me how can i do it, i already did below steps:

added this /etc/rsyslog.d/90-graylog2.conf with below content

$template GRAYLOGRFC5424,"%protocol-version% %timestamp:::date-rfc3339% %HOSTNAME% %app-name% %procid% %msg%\n"
*.* @;GRAYLOGRFC5424

also restart rsyslog service and allow the necessary port from IPTABLES.

please advise.

What type of input have you created in Graylog?
What’s the complete configuration of that input?
Is the correct IP address and 1514/udp the correct port of the input you’ve created in Graylog?

Thanks for your quick reply.

yes i added below lines in my remote server at this path vim /etc/rsyslog.d/90-graylog2.conf

$template GRAYLOGRFC5424,"%protocol-version% %timestamp:::date-rfc3339% %HOSTNAME% %app-name% %procid% %msg%\n"

and following below steps to add this client machine on my Graylog:

1: Browsing this IP address (user name admin and Password is ****)

Input Type: Global
Bind Address:
Port Number: 514

i pointed Graylog Server Public IP address ( at this domain name

but it is not accepting to add under input.

You’re using port 1514 in your rsyslog configuration.
