Why are the same logs appearing?


#1

Hi all,
I find there are two same search result in the graph, only difference between them is the timestamp field. But I find only one message in log file.


In this graph,in fact it’s just two logs, but search four result.I am very confused.
Please help me, thank you!

How exactly are you sending these logs to Graylog?
What’s the complete configuration of all involved components?

I use collector sidecar filebeat to send logs to graylog.
collector sidecar configuration is

And I find this two message ID are same.

(Jochen) #4

Are you using any 3rd party plugins in Graylog?

If the message ID is identical, then it’s the same message and is “only” displayed twice.


#5

I don’t use any 3rd party plugin in graylog.I install graylog with default plugin.


#6

By the way, If I click stream same message in search result display once, but click search button in home page,it display twice:confused:Then two same message appeared in alert notification.Is this problem because the same message is in two streams?


(Jochen) #7

It depends. If these two streams have different backing index sets, then the message is being stored twice in Elasticsearch. If all streams are using the same backing index set, then the message is being stored only once.

See http://docs.graylog.org/en/2.4/pages/configuration/index_model.html for details.


#8

En…but I configure alert with only one stream , it appeared twice in notification.
Do I need to ensure that only one log of all messages in elasticsearch appear once?


(Jochen) #9

As I wrote before, that depends on your use case and how you’ve configured your system.


#10

Sorry,I not very clear about it.:sob:The current situation is two streams have different backing index sets. One stream(named stream1) include another stream(named stream2) message, stream1 has more message than stream2. Then I configured alert on stream2,but in notification appear two same message.So I need to change stream2 backing index to stream1 backing index set and problem will be solved? I do not know whether this understanding is correct.
Thank you so much for responding to my questions so quickly.
