Ship logs from your serilog to logstash
Installing Serilog You will need to add the Serilog and Serilog.Sinks.Network packages. This guide will also use appSettings to configure Serilog.
Install-Package Serilog Install-Package Serilog.Sinks.Network Install-Package Serilog.Settings.AppSettings
Add AppSettings to your app.config or web.config.
<configuration> <appSettings> <!-- Level of logging --> <add key="serilog:minimum-level" value="Verbose" /> <!-- Use the TCP Network sink --> <add key="serilog:using:TCPSink" value="Serilog.Sinks.Network" /> <!-- Your logstash configuration --> <add key="serilog:write-to:TCPSink.uri" value="tls://your-logstash-host:your-port" /> </appSettings> </configuration>
serilog:write-to:TCPSink.uri value must be in the format "protocol://domain:port".
Create a statically accessible Logger configured from AppSettings.
Log.Logger = new LoggerConfiguration() .ReadFrom.AppSettings() .CreateLogger();
You can now log from anywhere in your application.
Log.Information("The global logger has been configured");
Serilog is a fully featured logging framework and has many other capabilities that are not detailed here, please see the Serilog Documentation for more information.
