With Linux

If you have are running your applications and servers over Linux we encourage you to use Rsyslog as a log shipper which is almost all the time already running on them.

This log shipper sends all the syslogs available on your servers but the integration also explains how to stream your own log files to Logmatic.io.

Rsyslog setup

The Rsyslog setup page

Just follow the instructions. The configuration provided in the setup page is generated with your api keys so you just have to copy-paste it in the write files and restart the service.

Install infrastructure dashboard

Once setup-ed, we encourage you to install the associated infrastructure integration. By doing so, you'll have a dashboard where you'll be able to monitor and investigate logs coming from all your hosts, applications by severity levels.

At this stage - if not already done - you should probably plug and configure Logmatic.io for some of your applications or HTTP server.
