Extract subdomain from referrer in logstash

(Search) #1

I use logstash to send apache log to elasticsearch. In the file config of logstash I have a filter
grok {
match => { "message" => "%{COMBINEDAPACHELOG}"}

In the list of fields of the obtained data I have the field "referrer" of which I would like to extract the subdomain. If for example:
referrer = "http://mysubdomain.mydomain.com/controller/action"
then i need to extract the string "mysubdomain" and assign it to a new "subdomain" field.


Use grok and match against


Updated to name subdomain instead of domain.

I'm new to logstash. If you can tell me how to complete my grok it will be nice of you :slight_smile:
grok {
match => { "message" => "%{COMBINEDAPACHELOG}"}
grok {
match => ???

grok { match => [ "referrer", "https?://(?<subdomain>[^/]+)\.[^\./]+\.[^\./]+/" ] }

should do it.

Don't works for me. The referrer is variable:
referrer = "http://mysubdomain.mydomain.com/controller/action"
referrer = "http://mysubdomain.mydomain.com/controller/action/param..."
referrer = "http://mysubdomain.mydomain.com"
And I can have https or http.


It already handles https. If the trailing / is optional then use

grok { match => [ "referrer", "https?://(?<subdomain>[^/]+)\.[^\./]+\.[^\./]+(/|$)" ] }
