trying to send the logs from nxlog to fluentd via tcp


(shubhra) #1

Hi All,

I am trying to send the logs from nxlog present on server1 to fluentd present on server2.

The log file looks like below:

2018-03-20 11:47:58.777554
2018-03-20 11:47:58.780092
2018-03-20 11:48:13.826746
2018-03-20 11:48:13.827341
2018-03-20 11:48:14.144523
2018-03-20 11:48:14.144947
2018-03-22 12:43:18.175988

The nxlog conf file looks like below:

<Input in10>
    Module      im_file
    File        "/var/log/nxlog/detail_test1"
</Input>

<Output tcp10>
    Module      om_tcp
    Host        <IP address of server2>
    Port        5171
</Output>

<Route test10>
    Path        in10 => tcp10
</Route>

The conf file for the fluentd looks like below:

<source>
  @type tcp
  tag tcp.events # required
  format /^(?<timestamp2>\w+)$/
  port 5171
  bind 0.0.0.0
  delimiter \n
</source>

<match tcp.events>
  @type stdout
</match>

The fluentd logs looks like below:

2018-03-22 12:47:11 +0000 [info]: listening tcp socket on 0.0.0.0:5171
2018-03-22 12:47:11 +0000 [info]: listening fluent socket on 0.0.0.0:24224
2018-03-22 12:47:11 +0000 [info]: listening dRuby uri="druby://127.0.0.1:24230" object="Engine"

The nxlog.log file states the below error:

2018-03-22 12:47:10 INFO reconnecting in 1 seconds
2018-03-22 12:47:10 ERROR om_tcp detected a connection error;Connection reset by peer

2018-03-22 12:47:12 INFO connecting to <IP address>:5171
2018-03-22 12:47:33 INFO reconnecting in 1 seconds

Could you please help? Why there is a connection error. There is no firewall rule, it seems.

This is not exactly a question about Graylog, isn’t it?

This is more about nxlog and fluentd. if you know what is wrong in the conf file? Could you please suggest the solution.

I’d suggest asking these questions in the NXLOG and fluentd communities:
