Send Aiven logs to Logtail

Logtail is a logging service. You can use the Aiven Remote syslog integration to send your logs to Logtail.

  1. Set up an Rsyslog source on Logtail. Choose Connect source, give your source a Name, and select "Rsyslog" as the Platform.
  2. Copy the Source token of your new source to configure the Aiven side of the integration.
  3. Create the service integration on Aiven. Choose Integration endpoints in the web console, click Syslog and choose Add new endpoint.
  4. Configure the new endpoint:
    • Set an Endpoint name for this integration

    • Server:

    • Port: 6514

    • Format: custom

    • Now replace YOUR_LOGTAIL_SOURCE_TOKEN in the log template below with the token you copied in step 2, and paste into the Log template field:

      <%pri%>%protocol-version% %timestamp:::date-rfc3339% %HOSTNAME% %app-name% %procid% %msgid% [logtail@11993 source_token="YOUR_LOGTAIL_SOURCE_TOKEN"] %msg%
  5. Add your new logs integration to any of your Aiven services (more information in the Rsyslog article)
  6. Check the Live tail page on Logtail to see the logs coming in.

Create the Logtail service integration endpoint with Aiven client‚Äč

To use the CLI, use the following command to create the service integration endpoint. Replace the placeholder with your token:

avn service integration-endpoint-create --project your-project \
-d logtail -t rsyslog \
-c -c port=6514 \
-c tls=true -c format=custom \
-c logline='<%pri%>%protocol-version% %timestamp:::date-rfc3339% %HOSTNAME% %app-name% %procid% %msgid% [logtail@11993 source_token="TOKEN-FROM-LOGTAIL"] %msg%'

This replaces steps 3 and 4 above.
