winston-logstash-udp Build Status

A Logstash UDP transport for winston.

Based on a gist by mbrevoort and inspired by winston-logstash.

Usage

Node

Recommended method:

    var winston = require('winston'),
        LogstashUDP = require('winston-logstash-udp').LogstashUDP;
 
    var logger = new(winston.Logger)({
      transports: [
        new(LogstashUDP)({
          port: 9999,
          appName: 'my application name',
          host: '127.0.0.1'
        })
      ]
    });

Alternate method:

    var winston = require('winston');
 
    //
    // Requiring `winston-logstash-udp` will expose
    // `winston.transports.LogstashUDP`
    //
    require('winston-logstash-udp');
 
    winston.add(winston.transports.LogstashUDP, {
      port: 9999,
      appName: 'my application name',
      host: '127.0.0.1'
    });

Logstash

    input { 
      # Sample input over UDP 
      udp { format => "json" port => 9999 type => "sample" }
    }
    output { 
      stdout { debug => true debug_format => "json"}
    }

Run Tests

  npm test

Troubleshooting

  • I get an error when installing node packages "ERR! Error: No compatible version found: assertion-error@'^1.0.1'"

    If you are running a version of NodeJS less than or equal to 0.8, upgrading NPM to a version greater than or equal to 1.4.6 should solve this issue.

    npm install -g npm@~1.4.6
    

    Another way around is to simply avoid installing the development dependencies:

    npm install --production
