AWS CloudWatch Logs Cookbook

Runtime License

Unofficial Chef Cookbook that installs AWS CloudWatch Logs<sup>™</sup> Agent and deploy it's configurations automatically.

Usage

Add this cookbook to your base recipe: ruby cookbook 'aws-cloudwatchlogs', '~> 1.1.5'

You need to configure the following node attributes via an environment or role: ruby default_attributes( 'aws_cwlogs' => { 'region' => 'your_aws_region', 'aws_access_key_id' => 'your_aws_access_key', 'aws_secret_access_key' => 'your_aws_secret_key', 'log' => { 'syslog' => { 'datetime_format' => '%b %d %H:%M:%S', 'file' => '/var/log/syslog', 'buffer_duration' => '5000', 'log_stream_name' => '{instance_id}', 'initial_position' => 'start_of_file', 'log_group_name' => '/var/log/syslog' } } } )

Or you can also configure by declaring it in another cookbook at a higher precedence level: ruby default['aws_cwlogs']['region'] = 'your_aws_region' default['aws_cwlogs']['aws_access_key_id'] = 'your_aws_access_key' default['aws_cwlogs']['aws_secret_access_key'] = 'your_aws_secret_key' default['aws_cwlogs']['log']['syslog'] = { 'datetime_format' => '%b %d %H:%M:%S', 'file' => '/var/log/syslog', 'buffer_duration' => '5000', 'log_stream_name' => '{instance_id}', 'initial_position' => 'start_of_file', 'log_group_name' => '/var/log/syslog' }

Once you defined the attributes, you will need to reference aws_cwlogs resource in your recipe: ```ruby include_recipe 'aws-cloudwatchlogs'

aws_cwlogs 'syslog' do log node['aws_cwlogs']['log']['syslog'] end

aws_cwlogs 'messages' do log node['aws_cwlogs']['log']['messages'] end ```

This will create a unique configuration file in AWS CloudWatch Logs that will be stored in etc/config directory.

Remember: You can configure as many logs as you need with log attribute.

Note: We are not making use of data_bags for AWS Credentials in this recipe at this time.

Example

Those attributes used before will generate the AWS CloudWatch Logs configuration below:

[syslog]
datetime_format = %b %d %H:%M:%S
file = /var/log/syslog
buffer_duration = 5000
log_stream_name = {instance_id}
initial_position = start_of_file
log_group_name = /var/log/syslog
