Operations TCP Raw/Plaintext Output

  • Dark
    Light

TCP Raw/Plaintext Output allows you to send data as UTF-8 encoded text to an arbitrary TCP endpoint (server and port). The data is sent with no additional formatting or encapsulation.

Note

This is an Operations Integrations feature and is only available since Graylog version 3.3.3; therefore, an Operations license is required. See the Integrations Setup page for more information.

Output Configuration

The Raw/Plaintext TCP Output supports all of the standard Operations Output Framework configuration options.

TCP Configuration

  • Destination IP Address
    • The IP address of the system that will receive the messages.
  • Destination Port
    • The port on which the destination system will listen for messages.
  • Frame Delimiting Method
    • Separates individual messages in the stream.
    • Frame delimiting methods are defined in Sections 3.4.1 and 3.4.2 of IETF RFC 6587.
      • Newline Character A newline character is appended to each message to mark the end of the message. Any newline characters within the message are escaped before sending.
      • Null Character A null character is appended to each message to mark the end of the message. Any null characters within the message are escaped before sending.
      • Octet Counting The length of the message (in bytes) and a space character for separation are prepended to the message. The contents of the message will not be altered.
