Collecting the logs from servers without installing a collection agent


(MJay) #1

Is there a non-intrusive way of gathering logs from the production system? That means no piece of software will be installed in the source systems. Hence, is there any way to collect logs from remote systems and feed to Elasticsearch?

It depends highly on each specific case. This is way too vague.

Are those logs available somehow on those systems, via HTTP APIs or otherwise?
Can those systems forward those logs themselves, like a syslog daemon or similar?

You can have a look on the available logstash input plugins to see if something suits your specific needs.
