Readme

k8s-syslog

Forwards logs from kubernetes to a (udp or tcp+tls) syslog server.

It uses the Kubernetes pod log API to stream the logs from each container in each pod. A ServiceAccount with pod read access is required, but can also use kubectl proxy eg. for local development. See deployment.yml for an example.

An environment variable named SYSLOG_ADDRESS is required, with the format tcp+tls://logs.papertrailapp.com:12345 or udp://localhost:514 or file:///dev/stdout.
