Pushing logs from the Kubernetes cluster using a fluentd

The following Kubernetes logs collector can be used to push your Kubernetes logs to LogSense.

It uses the Docker images

How to run it

Setting this up is as easy as two kubectl commands:

kubectl create secret -n kube-system generic logsense-token --from-literal=logsense-token=YOUR-LOGSENSE-TOKEN-HERE

kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/logsenseapp/fluentd-kubernetes-daemonset/master/logsense-daemonset.yaml

RBAC rules

If your cluster uses RBAC Authorization then you need to use some additional configuration. In such case please use the following spec file:

kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/logsenseapp/fluentd-kubernetes-daemonset/master/logsense-daemonset-rbac.yaml

How does it work

The deamonset creates a logging agent pod on every node of the Kubernetes cluster and takes care of the logs collection and distribution.

It uses the Fluentd Kubernetes DeamonSet underneath.
