I’ve started playing with TIC stack and setup Chronograf, InfluxDB and Telegraf with nearly default config, but added docker and docker_log inputs to Telegraf.
Chronograf shows default System and Docker dashboards - great!
But Chronograf doesn’t show logs from docker_log input. Reason is that it never asks for docker_log, but for syslog. From Chronograf debug logs:
command="SELECT count(\"message\") FROM \"telegraf\".\"autogen\".\"syslog\"
Instead of syslog it should use docker_log.
Documentation mentions docker_log:
Do I need to change a setting in Chronograf or InfluxDB or Telegraf?
Sorry for the noise. It also says:
Logs are pulled from the
syslog measurement. Other log inputs and alternate log measurement options will be available in future updates.
I’m not sure the TICK stack is pretty outdated. Out of curiosity what is leading you to use the TICK stack over InfluxDB 2.x?
You could use:
Thanks for your answer. It looks like your link points to docker metrics, but I’ve asked for
docker_logs. I want to use Chronografs log viewer to view, search and tail logs. Is there an alternative log file viewer in InfluxDB2 that works with Telegrafs
docker_logs input plugin? Thank you.
