remote_syslog2

Overview

Use this Puppet module to manage your remote_syslog2 install and which files should be sent to Papertrail's servers

Module Description

remote_syslog2 is written in Go and has less dependecies than remote_syslog. This module will install a package file from papertrail's github releases and configure the YAML file.

Usage

Get $host and $port for your log destination from the Papertrail website.

class {'remote_syslog2':
   host => 'logsX.papertrailapp.com',
   port => '11111',
   files => ["/var/log/nginx/error.log", "/var/log/syslog", "/var/log/auth.log"]
}

Pay attention that the service name is remote_syslog (not remote_syslog2) in case you want to notify it.
