No Input Messages


#1

Hello,

I just installed Graylog2 and its dependencies in one VM (Centos 7). It appears to be working fine, but I’m not seeing any input messages. I’ve configured two devices to send to the Graylog server and I’m seeing traffic coming from both of them via tcpdump. Not sure what I’m missing. Any ideas of where I should be looking to resolve this?

Thanks,

Allan

How did you install Graylog?
How did you configure Graylog?
How did you configure the inputs in Graylog?
What’s in the logs of your Graylog node?

Hello,

How did you install Graylog?
I followed the Graylog Centos installation guide at http://docs.graylog.org/en/2.2/pages/installation/os/centos.html.

How did you configure Graylog?
I followed the steps on how to configure graylog guide at http://docs.graylog.org/en/2.2/pages/configuration.html.

How did I configure the inputs in Graylog?
For the Sonicwall device I went to the Graylog Marketplace and downloaded the Sonicwall Content and imported the content from Graylog Inputs menu. For the Dell switch I configured Raw/Plaintext UDP input and for the linux server syslog UDP as the input.

As far as error logs, no errors under /var/log/graylog-server/server.log after I fixed a few errors the day before, but nothing new today.

However under /var/log/elasticsearch/graylog.log, this is what I’m seeing:

But what’s your specific configuration? I know the documentation, but you might have made some mistakes.

Can you manually send messages to this input, e. g. using netcat (nc)?

Please post the complete configuration of Graylog and the inputs you’ve created.

Thanks for helping me with this Jochen. I figured it out and it was something minor. I doubled checked the IPs for each input and saw that they were set to 127.0.0.1. I changed it to the actual IP address of the Graylog server and now I’m able see the messages.
