How to parse Haproxy log with grok



I am a new elastic stack user.

I want to parse the following log :

Dec 3 14:05:17 f774bd25748a haproxy[1]: unix:1 [03/Dec/2018:14:05:17.559] 0/0/1/13/14 200 1058 - - ---- 1773/140/0/0/0 0/0 "POST /tac/medias/access HTTP/1.1"Dec 3 14:05:17 frontend_proxy.qed9mwptyw6kdo3i9y9uogdl0.jie6pdr[15900]: Dec 3 14:05:17 f6047fe55160 haproxy[1]: unix:1 [03/Dec/2018:14:05:17.506] 0/0/1/70/72 200 1673 - - ---- 1768/145/0/0/0 0/0 "POST /css/catalog/medias/d55c1a3e-1c90-4a8c-8c21-dc23fdab4024?bundleItemT

I tried with the following filter from the dev tools console of elasticsearch but it doesn't work :

(?:%{SYSLOGTIMESTAMP:syslog_timestamp}|%{TIMESTAMP_ISO8601:timestamp8601}) %{IPORHOST:syslog_server} %{SYSLOGPROG}: %{IP:client_ip}:%{INT:client_port} [%{HAPROXYDATE:accept_date}] %{NOTSPACE:frontend_name} %{NOTSPACE:backend_name}/%{NOTSPACE:server_name} %{INT:time_queue}/%{INT:time_backend_connect}/%{NOTSPACE:time_duration} %{NOTSPACE:bytes_read} %{NOTSPACE:termination_state} %{INT:actconn}/%{INT:feconn}/%{INT:beconn}/%{INT:srvconn}/%{NOTSPACE:retries} %{INT:srv_queue}/%{INT:backend_queue}

Thank you for your help.

Try re-creating your grok filter from scratch again using:
The example you pasted and the grok filter don't match up at all... it seems to fall apart after:


Here my solution.

%{SYSLOGTIMESTAMP:timestamp} %{DATA:Aloha_name} %{DATA:SyslogFacility} %{DATA:Haproxy_process}: %{DATA:client_ip}:%{INT:client_port} \[%{HAPROXYDATE:accept_date}\] %{NOTSPACE:frontend_name} %{NOTSPACE:backend_name}/%{NOTSPACE:server_name} %{INT:Tq}/%{INT:Tw}/%{INT:Tc}/%{INT:Tr}/%{INT:Tt} %{INT:http_status_code} %{NOTSPACE:bytes_read} - - ---- %{INT:actconn}/%{INT:feconn}/%{INT:beconn}/%{INT:srvconn}/%{NOTSPACE:retries} %{INT:srv_queue}/%{INT:backend_queue} "%{WORD:Method} %{URIPATHPARAM:request} HTTP/%{NUMBER:http_version}"


That's what I did :wink:

If you are using Filebeat to collect the logs, then you can enable the haproxy module that does the parsing for you, without the need to write your own grok filter.


I don't think I can do that because my logs are prefixed by syslog.

syslog + haproxy log
