Graylog command line interface.

Project Description


* Free software: Apache Software License 2.0

Glog-CLI is an open source command line interface for Graylog2.


pip install glogcli


easy_install glogcli

or you can even install it from a GitHub clone:

git clone
cd glog-cli/
pip install . -r requirements.txt

Glog-CLI enables you to make searches using the official Graylog query language. To understand how to make queries
please see the documentation [].

Once you've installed the tool now it's time to run some commands, the following:

> glogcli -h -u john.doe -p password -@ "10 minutes ago" "source:my-app-server"


> glogcli -h -u john.doe -p password "message:200"


> glogcli -h -u john.doe -p password -f


> glogcli -h -u john.doe -p password "level:DEBUG"


> glogcli -h -u john.doe -p password "level:DEBUG" -f


> glogcli -h -u john.doe -p password "level:DEBUG" -d --fields timestamp,level,message -o dump.csv


> glogcli -h -u john-doe -p password -@ "2016-11-21 00:00:00" -# "2016-11-21 01:00:00" 'message:blabla'


> glogcli -e dev -r short


> glogcli -e dev -r short -st mystreamid


> glogcli -e dev -r short -st '*'


Glog-CLI can reuse some common configurations like address of your Graylog server and your credentials, it will look for a
*~/.glogcli.cfg* or a *glogcli.cfg* (in your current directory). Glog-CLI will use default environment and format
whenever an environment or format is omitted.

Here is a example for your glogcli.cfg file:



format={host} {level} {facility} {timestamp} {message}

format=[{timestamp}] {level} {message}

format=time: [{timestamp}] level: {level} msg: {message} tags: {tags}

Please run the *help* command to more detailed information about all the client features.
