Kibana logging configuration


(Evan) #1

Is there any way to configure kibana to write its logs to syslog?
If there is, is there configuration settings to control the log line format?

Thanks for any help.

Here are the server configuration options: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/current/kibana-server-properties.html

You can use logging.dest to specify the location for the output. It doesn't appear you are able to customize the format.

Thanks for that. The docs don't really state what the acceptable values are for that option. After some playing it is obvious that it is a file name. Even the example of stdout is not actually the standard out, it is a file of the name "kibana.stdout".

I have opened a feature request for this.
