Description

Hello,

I would like to experiment with Graylog2.

Would it be possible to get a VM running Ubuntu LTS with a FQDN of:

graylog.private.scl3.mozilla.com ?

While a real install of graylog probably is a massive resource sink, I am
more than happy to experiment using your defaults of 1 core, 1G of ram,
and the default disk space.
Actually, if Ubuntu is a PITA, then Red Hat is fine as well. 

Thank you!

Dave,

Curious, what are you looking to do with Graylog?

Hi Joe,
I'm checking it out to see if it could fill the role of managing our syslogs from all network equipment. 
Splunk would be great, but it is expensive.
Graylog2 is sometimes called, "the open source Splunk"

I spoke with a friend the other day who is a network management guru, he told me this is the
tool a lot of people are using these days.  

HTHs.

Ok. Have you looked at what MozDef can do you for you? It combines ElasticSearch and Kibana. Ping :jeff for more info if you're interested.

yes, actually we have.  Arzhel is quite interested.  The netops team had a meeting with Jeff about it.
We may end up using it.  But we'd like to check out everything that is available to us.

Thanks.
Sadly, ubuntu is a PITA, in that I can't properly puppetize it.  (bug 1040904 contains my errors seen and hopes to get fixes for 14.04)  

So, I have deployed graylog1.private.scl3.mozilla.com as a RHEL6 host, puppetized, and seeing as this is a test box, I haven't put it into nagios.  

Let me know if you need anything else.
