The location of syslog logs?


(Exevolium) #1

Hello,

Where is the location of the syslog logs from the server? I need to sign those logs. I need the place where the logs I see in the graylog web interface are kept as files. I also wrote in the Elasticsearch forum. I’ve written it here because I thought you might have an idea. I know that Graylog is just a Web GUI.

The structure I built is as follows:

Graylog 2.5
Elasticsearch 5.x
MongoDB 3.2

Thanks.

Depending on your way of installation and configuration the location might be different - but we wrote the default into the documentation: http://docs.graylog.org/en/2.5/pages/configuration/file_location.html

But just to mention it - The messages are stored inside Elasticsearch, what is a database that stores the content in binary files. So your messages are not saved in plain text files on disk.

Hi @Jan,

http://docs.graylog.org/en/2.5/pages/configuration/file_location.html
I looked at all the fields in this link and couldn’t find it.

But just to mention it - The messages are stored inside Elasticsearch, what is a database that stores the content in binary files. So your messages are not saved in plain text files on disk.

That was enough answer for me.
Thank you.
