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.

sumologic-collector Cookbook

This cookbook will install either the 32-bit and 64-bit Sumo Logic Linux collector using the shell script installer (based on the CPU type). It first sets up the files required for an unattended install (sumo.conf and the JSON configuration file) with the standard linux system log files, downloads the latest installer, and then runs the installer. If the requirements are met, then the collector will automatically install and activate itself. The JSON template can be edited for your environment's specifications.


Most importantly, you need access to the following URL on each server: -

This will allow for activation and downloading the installer.

For additional requirements, see this URL: -


<table> <tr> <th>['sumologic']['userID']</th> <th>String</th> <th>Sumo Logic User ID</th> <th>Required</th> </tr> <tr> <th>['sumologic']['password']</th> <th>String</th> <th>Sumo Logic Password</th> <th>Required</th> </tr> <tr> <th>['sumologic']['ephemeral']</th> <th>Boolean</th> <th>Sumo Logic Ephemeral Setting</th> <th>Required</th> </tr> <tr> <th>['sumologic']['sources']['default_timezone']</th> <th>String</th> <th>Timezone for source setup (defaults to UTC)</th> <th>Required</th> </tr> <tr> <th>['sumologic']['installDir'] </th> <th>String</th> <th>Sumo Logic Install Directory</th> <th>Required</th> </tr> </table>

The following attributes are not required but can be used to define custom cookbooks and templates within a wrapper cookbook for generating custom sumo.conf and sumo.json configuration files. <table> <tr> <th>['sumologic']['json_config_cookbook'] Default: sumologic-collector</th> <th>String</th> <th>User defined cookbook for generating custom sumo.json templates</th> <th>Not Required</th> </tr> <tr> <th>['sumologic']['json_template']</th> <th>String</th> <th>User defined sumo.json template name</th> <th>Not Required</th> </tr> <tr> <th>['sumologic']['conf_config_cookbook'] Default: sumologic-collector</th> <th>String</th> <th>User defined cookbook for generating custom sumo.conf templates</th> <th>Not Required</th> </tr> <tr> <th>['sumologic']['conf_template'] </th> <th>String</th> <th>User defined sumo.conf template name</th> <th>Not Required</th> </tr> </table>

The following attributes are not required but can be used to define an encrypted data bag containing the authentication credentials. The data bag that this points to should have 'email' and 'password' keys containing the email address and password to use to authenticate this collector.

<table> <tr> <th>['sumologic']['credentials']['bag_name']</th> <th>String</th> <th>Name of the data bag.</th> <th>Required</th> </tr> <tr> <th>['sumologic']['credentials']['item_name']</th> <th>String</th> <th>Name of the item within the data bag. </th> <th>Required</th> </tr> <tr> <th>['sumologic']['credentials']['secret_file']</th> <th>String</th> <th>Path to the local file containing the encryption secret key.</th> <th>Optional</th> </tr> </table>
