Operations Center: Frequently Asked Questions

Is the IP behind static?

IP for is is the domain name used to send your logs to SEKOIA.IO, either via Syslog or HTTP protocols. The IP address behind that service is static and stable. You can use that IP to configure your firewalls to allow connections from your forwarding systems to SEKOIA.IO.

How to debug Rsyslog’s forward configuration to SEKOIA.IO?

If you use Rsyslog to forward your logs to SEKOIA.IO, you will probably have a section like this in your configuration files:

template(name="SEKOIAIOUnboundTemplate" type="string" string="<%pri%>1 %timestamp:::date-rfc3339% %hostname% %app-name% %procid% LOG [SEKOIA@53288 intake_key=\"jOK5bMVXz5Iz7gfogQDbCcC7l7S2IrOs5\"] %msg%\n")
if $programname startswith 'unbound' then @@(o);SEKOIAIOUnboundTemplate

If you want to retrieve the raw data that is forwarded to SEKOIA.IO, you can duplicate the last line and make Rsyslog dump logs to a local file:

if $programname startswith 'unbound' then /tmp/nginx-output.log;SEKOIAIOUnboundTemplate

This way, you will be able to exactly identify what data is sent to SEKOIA.IO.

# tail -n 1 /tmp/nginx-output.log
<30>1 2021-01-13T14:52:06.934860+01:00 ote unbound - LOG [SEKOIA@53288 intake_key="jOK5bMVXz5Iz7gfogQDbCcC7l7S2IrOs5"]  [596451:0] info: A IN
