Sending HAProxy logs to Graylog

I just finished the setup of a brand new Graylog 3 server and wanted to share my configuration for sending HAProxy logs. I’m not digging into the server setup. It’s super simple; you can find out docker-compose configuration on the official docs. https://docs.graylog.org/en/3.0/pages/installation/docker.html

Don’t be stingy for the ram; give the proper space for god’s sake. (depends on your data for sure)

Here is the configuration that I use:

  1. add “log-format” to your haproxy configuration and then reload the service.
  2. change IP address and make sure the port mapped properly on the docker configuration.
  3. restart rsyslog service
