Send data via Azure Logs to your Logstash instance provided by Logit.io

Azure Logs

Pull logs from Azure Event Hub to Logstash & get started with Azure application logging.

Step 1 - Configuration RequirementsCopy

This input plugin is only available for ELK stacks running at least version 6.4

You are encouraged to create a separate consumer group specifically for Logstash and not to reuse any default or existing groups.

The input supports multiple event hubs - the connection string can be found under Azure Portal -> Event Hub -> Shared access policies.

example connection string
Endpoint=sb://logit.servicebus.windows.net/;SharedAccessKeyName=log-read-only;SharedAccessKey=mm6AbDcEfj8lk7sjsbzoTJ10qAkiSaG663YykEAG2eg=;EntityPath=prod-logs

A blob storage account is used to preserve state across logstash reboots.

example connection string

DefaultEndpointsProtocol=https;AccountName=logstash;
AccountKey=ETOPnkd/hDAWidkEpPZDiXffQPku/SZdXhPSLnfqdRTalssdEuPkZwIcouzXjCLb/xPZjzhmHfwRCGo0SBSw==;
EndpointSuffix=core.windows.net

Step 2 - Start Sending Logs to a StackCopy

To start sending logs from an Azure Event Hub to your Stack you need to configure an Azure Logstash Input.

Logit.io will verify your input before it is applied, we will contact you to confirm when this has been completed.

Step 3 - Azure Log Monitoring OverviewCopy

As one of the most popular cloud computing platforms, Microsoft Azure provides businesses with the capabilities to run databases, servers & many other services virtually.

Azure Event Hub is a platform built for streaming & ingesting big data. The Microsoft platform is able to ingest millions of events per second, so having a log management service for transforming and tailing events is necessary for a thorough analysis of log messages.

As a disaster recovery tool, Azure is known for its advanced site recovery which is operational across all operating systems, locations, & languages. The platform also allows users to customise the frequency of backup schedules & works alongside the Logit platform as our hosted ELK Stacks support version control & rollbacks for added peace of mind.

Our platform is built to simplify Azure log management as we provide your hybrid cloud & multi-cloud Azure environments with the ability to parse & monitor your activity across hybrid environments & audit logs to bring data-driven insights that are valuable for a wide variety of use cases.

Logit’s hosted Elastic Stack allows you to aggregate and analyze all of your logs centrally, saving your InfoSec & DevOps teams from unnecessary maintenance overheads by centralising all of your Azure monitor logs.

Tail large volumes of logs & gain near real-time insights on the performance and security issues your infrastructure faces using our cloud-based platform. Logit also offers automated parsing through highly available Logstash pipelines as a solution for migrating your log data fast.

If you need any further assistance with migrating your Azure data to Logstash we're here to help you discover the insights locked in data hosted on Azure, GCP, AWS or any of the integrations covered in our data sources.
