Multiple Segments logs Collection


(Puneet Garg) #1

Hi,
I am a newbie, I am planning to use Logstash for collecting multiple segments logs listening over TCP. Example log format with 23 segments are below:

<181>Jun 29 14:41:37 server1 CM_Passed_Authentications 0000000001 23 0 2015-06-29 14:41:37.881 +05:30 0019694780 5200 NOTICE Passed-Authentication: Authentication succeeded, ConfigVersionId=143,
<181>Jun 29 14:41:37 server1 CM_Passed_Authentications 0000000001 23 1 Device IP Address=10.20.30.40, DestinationIPAddress=50.60.70.80, DestinationPort=1234, UserName=a1-b2-c3-n4,
<181>Jun 29 14:41:37 server1 CM_Passed_Authentications 0000000001 23 2 Protocol=http, RequestLatency=6, NetworkDeviceName=mobile, User-Name=xyz, NAS-IP-Address=1.2.3.4,
.
.
.
<181>Jun 29 14:41:37 server1 CM_Passed_Authentications 0000000001 23 22 ir=profile-name=xyz; },

I want to collect as single log entry by parsing and formatting text with time stamp, other header information and message body.
I checked couple of forums but couldn't find a solution which fits my requirement.

Can someone help me on the same?

Thanks,
Puneet Garg

So you are trying to multiline them together? Does this fit if log begins with serve1 CM_Passes_Authentication group them together?

Thanks for your reply.
No, That's not the part by which we can group by. It can be group by with below header in current case
<181>Jun 29 14:41:37 server1 CM_Passed_Authentications 0000000001 23

But all info will be changing and coming dynamically for other logs.

Thanks,
Puneet

Hi Michael,
I see in my logs I have 0000000001 common. Can I write a codec or filter pattern to check that ID to group logs? If yes, please suggest some sample based on my logs structure.

Thanks,

Hi Michael,
Just to update I used aggregate filters to achieve my use case.
Thanks for your reply.
