BOSH Release for Sumo Logic Collector



Open source. Code available here.

To aggregate logs from BOSH-deployed machines, I packaged a BOSH release of the Sumo Logic collector.

We already used Sumo Logic to aggregate our logs, so when we began deploying Elasticsearch with BOSH, we wanted to aggregate those logs too. Writing a BOSH release is how software is packaged for BOSH, so I automated the Linux collector setup in the packaging script.

Later I added configuration to support a hosted collector so we could point syslog sources to a host that would forward logs to Sumo Logic.
