Fluentd bindings for django

Project description

============
django-fluentd
============

django-fluentd allows you to use django's logging framework to log directly to a fluentd server of your choice.

Please consider the package as unstable and don't use it for production, yet.

Installation
============

with pip::

pip install django-fluentd

**or**

with setup.py::

git clone https://github.com/jayfk/django-fluentd.git
cd django-fluentd
python setup.py install

Configuration
============

Add the following to your settings.py::

DJANGO_FLUENTD_SERVER = "10.10.10.10"
DJANGO_FLUENTD_PORT = 24224 #no string
DJANGO_FLUENTD_TAG = "your_fluentd_tag"

Add the fluentd handler to your LOGGING dict in your settings.py and add this handler to one of your loggers::

LOGGING = {

...

'handlers':{
'fluentd': {
'level': 'DEBUG',
'class': 'django_fluentd.handler.FluentdHandler',
},
}

...

'loggers': {
'django': {
'handlers': ['fluentd',],
'level': 'DEBUG',
'propagate': False,
},
},
}

If you want to capture all logging messages using fluentd, you can add a root handler::

LOGGING = {
...

'root': {
'level': 'DEBUG',
'handlers': ['fluentd'],
},

...
}

Further information on how to use django's logging framework can be found here: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/logging/

Fluentd Server Setup
============

Your Fluentd Server should listen on the ip and the port you specified in ``DJANGO_FLUENTD_SERVER`` and ``DJANGO_FLUENTD_PORT``::

<source>
type forward
port 24224
bind 10.10.10.10
</source>

Please not that you currently can't use fluentd's secure_forward. If you want to send encrypted or authenticated messages
to another fluentd server on the net, you'll have to add a local fluentd server that accepts unencrypted messages and forwards
them using secure_forward::

<source>
type forward
port 24224
bind 10.10.10.10
</source>

<match **>
type secure_forward
shared_key foobar
self_hostname example.org
send_timeout 60s
recover_wait 10s
heartbeat_interval 1s
phi_threshold 8
hard_timeout 60s

<server>
name remote_server_name
host 10.10.10.11
port 24224
username your_username
password your_password
</server>

</match>
