Follow this step by step guide to get 'logs' from your system to Logit.io:
Step 1 - Ensure Azure Event Hub
Before you begin you will need to ensure you have an available Azure Event Hub in your Azure Portal.
We will configure your Container instance to ship activity logs directly to this Azure Event Hub.
Once you have configured your Event Hub and Event Hub namespace, we need to configure the Container Activity Logs.
Step 2 - Configure Container Activity Logs
Browse to the Azure Containers on the Azure Portal and select an existing or choose to Add a new container.
Select the required container and from the left menu and choose Activity Logs. You will see recent Activity logs for the selected container instance.
Step 3 - Configure Activity Log Diagnostic Settings
In order to direct the Azure Container Activity Logs to our Event Hub we need to configure the diagnostic settings.
Choose Diagnostic settings from the top menu, then choose Add diagnostic setting. Here we can specify which activity logs we want to stream to the Event Hub.
Step 4 - Confirm Messages in Event Hub
In your Azure Portal browse to your Event Hub and confirm that messages are arriving.
Step 5 - Configure permissions
Once you have data streaming to your Azure event hub, it is recommended to create a Consumer Group specifically for Logstash and not to reuse any default or existing groups.
The Logstash input supports multiple event hubs - the connection string for each hub can be found in the Azure Portal -> Event Hub -> Shared access policies.
example connection string Endpoint=sb://<youreventhubnamespace>.servicebus.windows.net/;SharedAccessKeyName=<yoursharedaccesspolicyname>;SharedAccessKey=<yoursharedaccesskey>;EntityPath=<youreventhubname>
A blob storage account is used to preserve state across logstash reboots. The Storage account connection string can be found in the Access Keys section under the Storage Account Settings menu in the Azure Portal
example connection string DefaultEndpointsProtocol=https;AccountName=<storage-account-name>; AccountKey=<storage-account-key>; EndpointSuffix=core.windows.net
Step 6 - Configure Logstash for Azure Event Hub
To start pulling logs and metrics from the Azure Event Hub to your Stack you need to configure an Azure Logstash Input on your Logit.io Stack.
Step 7 - Check Logit.io for your logs
Now you should view your data:
