Sending GELF via HTTP - error "is missing mandatory . . . field"


(Hkelley) #1

I’m using Python requests to send GELF that looks like this:

{"full_message": "ProcessRollup2V12", "host": "fillmein", "version": "1.1", "timestamp": 1545401488441, "short_message": "csdatareplicator"}

The server responds with the 202 but the messages are never processed. I can see these in server.log, but clearly my JSON does have those attributes.

WARN  [GelfCodec] GELF message is missing mandatory "host" field.
ERROR [DecodingProcessor] Unable to decode raw message 
ERROR [DecodingProcessor] Error processing message
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: GELF message is missing mandatory "short_message" or "message" field.

Code snippet below:

gelf_log={
    "version":"1.1",
    "host":"fillmein",
    "short_message": "csdatareplicator",
    "full_message": cs_event["name"],
    "timestamp": int(cs_event["timestamp"])
  } 

gelf_string = json.dumps(gelf_log).encode('utf-8')
print gelf_string

r = requests.post(
  graylog_input,
  json=gelf_string,
  headers=headers,
  **rkwargs
)

Huh, would you look at that? At first glance that does look like it should work… I’ll poke around a little, see what I can find.

Can you confirm that the GELF message arrives in the right format and state, by sending it to a Netcat listener? So you’d skip the HTTP POST, but instead use a raw ASCII over TCP/IP connection. You could also run a basic HTTP daemon (like Python’s BaseHTTPServer) instead, to see what data comes in.

EDIT :
Hang on… I’m not on the up-and-up with Python. Is requests.post a HTTP POST call? Or is it something else? Cause based on the discussion below the GELF input on Graylog would be a simple TCP receiver like Netcat.

Which btw also mentions that GELF lines need to be terminated with a \0.


(Hkelley) #3

I’m using this input - http://docs.graylog.org/en/2.5/pages/sending_data.html#gelf-via-http

I posted my document in BaseHTTPServer and do get a valid JSON document:
{“full_message”: “ProcessRollup2V12”, “host”: “fillmein”, “version”: “1.1”, “timestamp”: 1545401488441, “short_message”: “csdatareplicator”}

Still investigating


(Tess) #4

Silly question, what happens when you send the test-message through Curl (as shown in the example on the page you linked to)?


(Hkelley) #5

With curl, I get the 202 from the client side and get the error below (one time only - as if something has died server side). I think I must have a configuration problem deeper than this input.

(Tess) #6

Huh! Yeah, that seems iffy mate :confused: Time to poke around in server.log.


(Konrad Merz) #7

If I understand it right the problem does not seem to be on your client side but on the server side.

As @Totally_Not_A_Robot suggest I would look around in the server.log if you find other errors and backtraces there.

Do you mind sharing your Input configuration via screenshot with us, so I can try to reproduce your problem?
And what version of Graylog exactly do you running?

(Tess) #9

Thanks for putting in the effort @hkelley :slight_smile:

What Konrad meant when he wrote:

… is, please go to the Graylog GUI, browse System > Inputs > Your GELF input and then screenshot the current config. Or just type the fields into a table here, if that’s easier :wink:

Also, this box:
http://192.168.173.65:9000/api/system/inputstates

I assume that’s your Graylog box, right?

  • Is the IP actually correct?
  • Can you confirm whether the Graylog GUI is still available once those errors show up? It runs on :9000 as well.
  • Can you confirm with curl whether the API URL is really not reachable once those errors show up?

(Hkelley) #10

Will post screenshot shortly. In the interim,

  • IP is correct
  • Remote client can still reach UI and API browser post-error

(Tess) #11

Can you reliably reproduce the ProxiedResource error by sending that message through Curl? Because then obviously it would be related.


(Hkelley) #12

Yes, that error is the one that pops up just once after the POST.

That’s just the darnedest thing :smiley:


(Konrad Merz) #14

I try to reproduce on 3.0 beta and get also an error but a different one. Tomorrow I will try to understand that first, and after that will go to 2.5 and take a look there.


(Konrad Merz) #15

I can’t reproduce your problem with the same config.

I setup the GELF HTTP Input on 2.5.1 with the default config (looked like you did the same).

I was able to successfully run this command:
curl -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{ "version": "1.1", "host": "example.org", "short_message": "A short message", "level": 5, "_some_info": "foo" }' 'http://localhost:12201/gelf'

I assume you did the same?


(Tess) #16

I’m not sure that @hkelley did… For starters they’re using Python, but perhaps the method they’re calling is not 100% comparable to your example. Unfortunately we can’t be sure, because for starters the called URL is not shown in the example in the top post.


(Hkelley) #17

I have reinstalled Graylog. The /var/lib/graylog-server/journal folder was missing so I wanted to start over.

The local curl POST now lands in the index. The remote post from python is landing in the /var/lib/graylog-server/journal/messagejournal-0 .log file but is not hitting the index.

I will investigate further tomorrow.


(Tess) #18

But dude, that’s totally progress :slight_smile:

Good on you!


(Hkelley) #19

Yes, progress.

Where do you suggest I look to determine why the messages don’t leave the journal? Should the journal message-n files be emptied as the messages are indexed, or does it roll into a new message files as it goes?


(Tess) #20

The journal keeps messages as long as the connection to ElasticSearch is broken.

Under normal conditions the journal is continuously flushed, every few seconds, pushing messages through the outputs. For example into ElasticSearch. If the journal keeps growing, there are problems in talking to the Elastic backend.
