Graylog Collector v0.4.0 Is Now Available!

Graylog Collector v0.4.0 is a feature and bug fix release. We strongly
recommend you upgrade to the latest version if you are running an
earlier version.

New Features

Static Message Fields

This release introduces support for static message fields for all
inputs. It allows you to define custom fields which get inserted into
each message that is send to Graylog.

Please check our updated

for details.

Example input configuration with static message fields:

inputs {
apache-access-log {
type = “file”
path = “/var/log/apache2/access.log”
message-fields = {
“program” = “apache2”
“priority” = 4

Operating System Detection

The collector tries to detect the operating system it is running on and
logs the result into its log file. This information can be useful for
debugging problems. In the future we will show this data in the Graylog
web interface as well.

2015-07-23T12:40:14.843+0200 INFO [main] cli.commands.Run – Starting Collector v0.4.0 (commit 32f24a0)
2015-07-23T12:40:14.846+0200 INFO [main] cli.commands.Run – Running on Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS (trusty) Linux 3.13.0-57-generic (amd64)


Not really a bug, but we further improved the resource usage of the
collector by removing the number of threads while running.
