Elastic Stack : Install Logstash
2017/05/07
 
Install Logstash which collects or manages various logs.
For description of Logstash or how to write the setting file, refer to official site below.
⇒ https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/logstash/current/index.html
[1] Install Logstash. Configure Repository for Elasticsearch before it like here.
[root@dlp ~]#
yum -y install logstash
[2] Create a setting file and start Logstash.
For example, create a setting that Logstash collects sshd fail logs from [/var/log/secure].
[root@dlp ~]#
vi /etc/logstash/conf.d/sshd.conf
# create new

# extract sshd fail logs from [/var/log/secure] and output to index [sshd_fail-yyyy.mm] in elasticsearch

input {
  file {
    type => "seucure_log"
    path => "/var/log/secure"
  }
}
filter {
  grok {
    add_tag => [ "sshd_fail" ]
    match => { "message" => "Failed %{WORD:sshd_auth_type} for %{USERNAME:sshd_invalid_user} from %{IP:sshd_client_ip} port %{NUMBER:sshd_port} %{GREEDYDATA:sshd_protocol}" }
  }
}

output {
  elasticsearch {
    index => "sshd_fail-%{+YYYY.MM}"
  }
}

[root@dlp ~]#
chgrp logstash /var/log/secure

[root@dlp ~]#
chmod 640 /var/log/secure

[root@dlp ~]#
systemctl start logstash

[root@dlp ~]#
systemctl enable logstash
[3] Few minutes later, make sure logs are collected normally.
