Library to handle Elasticsearch, Logstash, Logstash-Forwarder & Kibana
cookbook 'ellk', '= 0.3.1', :supermarket
knife supermarket install ellk
knife supermarket download ellk
hack friendly: Elasticsearch, Logstash, Logstash-forwarder and Kibana
note: expects consumer to install java and handle certs
Support and Tested
- chef 11+
- some kind of java
- see metadata for complexity
The mindset for this creation is that logstash-forwarder is pleasant enough
to cast out to all your resident nodes and since messing with templates is a pain,
it allows you to just provide a hash to template out the configuration. Making
recipes easier to configure with.
Next in the chain are the
logstash nodes. Typically, I'd imagine them to be 1:1 with all
elasticsearch nodes also created by this LWRP; so
localhost is a default output. Otherwise,
the matra of this design is if defaults don't work,
source your consuming cookbook with your own
templates copied from this cookbook. Pass any optional config vars you want in your templaes with
conf_options attribute and hack away.
This is hack friendly and mainly focused on getting you a framework
to work by. The heavy lifting comes from ARK and RUNIT cookbooks; everything else is template
manipulation. Any discovery trickeness should be handled at the consuming recipe.
See ellktest as an example.
