We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

Configuration

How to configure a Agent to send data to a centralised Fluentd-Server

Install a Plugin

Install your fluentd plugin. (check here for the right pluginname : http://fluentd.org/plugin/ ).

You can choose from a file or gem based instalation.

  include ::fluentd
  
  fluentd::install_plugin { 'elasticsearch': 
    plugin_type => 'gem',
    plugin_name => 'fluent-plugin-elasticsearch',
  }

Create a Agent

The Agent watches over your logfiles and sends its content to the Collector.

  include ::fluentd
  
  fluentd::configfile { 'apache': }
  fluentd::source { 'apache_main': 
    configfile => 'apache'
    type => 'tail',
    format => 'apache2',
    tag => 'apache.access_log',
    config => {
      'path' => '/var/log/apache2/access.log',
      'pos_file' => '/var/tmp/fluentd.pos',
    },
    notify => Class['fluentd::service']
  }
  
  fluentd::configfile { 'syslog': }
  fluentd::source { 'syslog_main': 
    configfile => 'syslog',
    type => 'tail',
    format => 'syslog',
    tag => 'system.syslog',
    config => {
      'path' => '/var/log/syslog',
      'pos_file' => '/tmp/td-agent.syslog.pos',
    },
    notify => Class['fluentd::service']
  }
  
  fluentd::configfile { 'forward': }
  fluentd::match { 'forward_main': 
    configfile => 'forward'
    pattern => '**',
    type => 'forward',
    servers => [
      {'host' => 'PUT_YOUR_HOST_HERE', 'port' => '24224'}
    ],
    notify => Class['fluentd::service']
  }

creates on the Agent side following files :

/etc/td-agent/
  ├── config.d
  │   ├── apache.conf
  │   ├── syslog.conf
  │   └── forward.conf
  ├── ...
  ...

Create a Collector

The Collector collects all the data from the Agents. He now stores the data in files, Elasticsearch or elsewhere.

  include ::fluentd

  fluentd::configfile { 'collector': }
  fluentd::source { 'collector_main':
    configfile => 'collector',
    type => 'forward',
    notify => Class['fluentd::service']
  }
  
  fluentd::match { 'collector_main':
    configfile => 'collector',
    pattern => '**',
    type => 'elasticsearch',
    config => {
      'logstash_format' => true,
    },
    notify => Class['fluentd::service']
  }
  
  # receive syslog messages on port 5140
  # all rsyslog daemons on the clients sends theire messages to 5140
  fluentd::configfile { 'rsyslog': }
  fluentd::source { 'rsyslog_main':
    configfile => 'rsyslog',
    type => 'syslog',
    tag => 'system.local',
    config => {
      'port' => '5140',
      'bind' => '0.0.0.0',
    },
    notify => Class['fluentd::service']
  }

creates on the Collectors side following files :

/etc/td-agent/
  ├── config.d
  │   └── collector.conf
  ├── ...
  ...

copy ouput to multiple stores

  $logger=[ { 'host' => 'logger-sample01', 'port' => '24224'},
            { 'host' => 'logger-example01', 'port' => '24224', 'standby' => ''} ] 
            
  fluentd::match { 'forward_to_logger':
      configfile  => 'sample_tail',
      pattern     => 'alocal',
      type        => 'copy',
      config      => [
      {
        'type'               => 'forward',
        'send_timeout'       => '60s',
        'recover_wait'       => '10s',
        'heartbeat_interval' => '1s',
        'phi_threshold'      => 8,
        'hard_timeout'       => '60s',
        'flush_interval'     => '5s',
        'servers'            => $logger,
      },
      {
        'type'              => 'stdout',
        'output_type'       => 'json',
      }
      ],
      notify => Class['fluentd::service']
  }

```

### add a filter
```
    fluentd::configfile { 'myfilter': }
    fluentd::filter { 'myfilter_main':
      configfile          => 'myfilter',
      pattern             => '**',
      type                => 'grep',
      input_key           => 'key',
      regexp              => '/*.foo.*/',
      exclude             => 'baar',
      output_tag          => 'mytag',
      add_tag_prefix      => 'pre_',
      remove_tag_prefix   => 'remove_',
      add_tag_suffix      => '_after',
      remove_tag_suffix   => '_remove',
      config     => {
        'customvalue' => true,
      }
    }
```
