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.

Description Build Status

A simple cookbook for setting up a server to stream logs into Logentries via the
Token-based input, using Rsyslogd.

NOTE: While it is fully functional, this cookbook is no longer being actively worked on.
If you're interested in taking over, please do get in touch!


Built to run on systems with Rsyslog installed, tested on Ubuntu 12.04.


['logentries']['syslog_selector'] = The syslog tags and types to stream into Logentries (defaults to "*.*")
['logentries']['resume_retry_count'] = The number of times to retry the sending of failed messages (defaults to unlimited)
['logentries']['queue_disk_space'] = The maximum disk space allowed for queues (default to 100M)
['logentries']['enable_tls'] = Whether to encrypt all log traffic going into Logentries (default to True). Automatically switches from UDP to TCP as well.


First, make sure you set the ['logentries']['token'] attribute in your Role/Environment
to the token created in Logentries for your input. Then include the logentries::default
recipe in you run list to start streaming all syslog entries to Logentries.

Tailing log files

This functionality is currently not available, but will be provided via the Opscode Rsyslog cookbook
(included as a dependency), where there is an open pull request for it at the time of this writing.
