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.

Supported Platforms

The following platforms are supported by this cookbook, meaning that the recipes run on these platforms without error:

  • Ubuntu


  • logentries - Set up the apt repository and install the logentries package


This cookbook installs the Logentries Agent package from the Logentries apt repository.

Additionally this cookbook provides a logentries definition which you can use to register hosts, follow logs, and execute other le based commands.

# register a server
logentries do
  account_key 'abcdefgh-ijkl-mnop-qrst-uvwxyz123456'
  server_name 'appserver'

  action :register

# follow a log (if it hasn't already been logged)
logentries '/var/log/syslog' do
  log_name 'Syslog'
  action :follow

You can use logentries from a json node config too by specifying a logentries element in your config with an account_key, server_name, and optionally some log_files.

  "logentries": {
    "account_key": "abcdefgh-ijkl-mnop-qrst-uvwxyz123456",
    "server_name": "My Server",
    "log_files": {
      "App Server": "/var/www/myapp/log/production.log",
      "Syslog": "/var/log/syslog"


Logentries is split into two packages, logentries and logentries-daemon, the former contains the command-line tools and the latter is the reporting agent. Unfortunately, when you install the logentries-daemon package it immediately tries to start the agent and will fail if you haven't pre-configured your host settings; this is problematic in a Chef script, because we haven't had an opportunity to set things up yet.

To solve this problem, the commandline tools are installed immediately, then the logentries-daemon package will only be installed at the end of your chef run; it will be triggered by the use of any of the logentries definitions.
