Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

Installs and configures a Graylog2 server on Ubuntu systems (10.04 only at present).

This is a Chef re-engineering of the Sean Porter (@portertech) Linode StackScript for graylog2,
available here:



Downloads, installs, configures and starts the java graylog2-server. Does not install
the web-interface. Uses resources from the Opscode "apt" cookbook to add a repo from which
it pulls MongoDB.


First calls graylog2::default to install the server. Then downloads, installs, and configures
the rails-based graylog2-web-interface. Also installs a local mysql-server to support it.


First calls graylog2::web-interface to ensure that both the server and webui are available. Then
calls the Opscode "apache2" cookbook to install apache2 before (itself) installing the apache2
mod_passenger module via apt, and finally calling apache_site to configure apache2 to serve the
graylog2 web interface.


This cookbook can be called via any of its three recipes. To get a fully working graylog2 server, call
graylog::apache2 - it will set up the full stack, with apache2 installed to serve the Rails app. If
you use another webserver, you can call graylog2:web-interface, which will install the base server
and the web-interface rails app, but not configure a webserver to serve it.

Note that this cookbook makes lots of assumptions about defaults, and does things like install a local
mysql server with no root password (doh). Do be sure to tweak this for your comfort and security
before using it in production.

Also note - this cookbook does not switch off any local logging system. That means that if you are
trying to get Graylog2 to 'catch' syslog messages, you may have to disable your local rsyslog or
syslog-ng as they may have already snabbled up port 514. The cookbook does sudo-start Graylog2, so
it should be able to bind udp/514 at startup. Stop/Start/restart Graylog2 using the installed init.d
script (/etc/init.d/graylog2 stop|start|restart). TODO: convert to an upstart job.

Also also note - I have pegged the version of Bundler this cookbook installs at 1.0.3 due to requirements
of our infrastructure. If you already use a different bundler, or want to use the latest, remove the
"version" statement from the gem-package "bundler" resource in web-interface.rb.
