Log forwarding

GitHub Enterprise Server uses syslog-ng to forward system and application logs to the server you specify.

About log forwarding

Any log collection system that supports syslog-style log streams is supported (e.g., Logstash and Splunk).

When you enable log forwarding, you must upload a CA certificate to encrypt communications between syslog endpoints. Your appliance and the remote syslog server will perform two-way SSL, each providing a certificate to the other and validating the certificate which is received.

Enabling log forwarding

  1. On the Consola de administración settings page, in the left sidebar, click Monitoring.
  2. Select Enable log forwarding.
  3. In the Server address field, type the address of the server to which you want to forward logs. You can specify multiple addresses in a comma-separated list.
  4. In the Protocol drop-down menu, select the protocol to use to communicate with the log server. The protocol will apply to all specified log destinations.
  5. Optionally, select Enable TLS. We recommend enabling TLS according to your local security policies, especially if there are untrusted networks between the appliance and any remote log servers.
  6. To encrypt communication between syslog endpoints, click Choose File and choose a CA certificate for the remote syslog server. You should upload a CA bundle containing a concatenation of the certificates of the CAs involved in signing the certificate of the remote log server. The entire certificate chain will be validated, and must terminate in a root certificate. For more information, see TLS options in the syslog-ng documentation.

Troubleshooting

If you run into issues with log forwarding, contact Soporte de GitHub Enterprise and attach the output file from http(s)://[hostname]/setup/diagnostics to your email.
