Provision plaintext syslog collectors in esams/ulsfo/eqsin
Open, MediumPublic


With Ganeti in PoPs we can move forward with provisioning VMs to act as local syslog collectors for devices that don't support encrypted syslog. Said VMs will listen for udp/tcp syslog and forward logs securely to centrallog hosts, and to the logging pipeline as needed/required (cc @ayounsi). These VMs (and centrallog hosts in eqiad/codfw) can double as netconsole receivers too (cfr T242579).

Outline of steps

  • Write new role/profile to collect and forward syslog
  • Provision VMs (2-4GB ram / 20GB disk should be plenty)
  • Setup the VMs to attract anycast syslog traffic
