Example for Kibana searches

The following example is based upon the Kibana dashboard Discover / Logs - All Airlock Logs which is accessible under Log & Report >> Log Viewer.

  • To filter for Events:
  • a)
    For custom searches:
    Perform a new search i.e. log_id:EVENT_* or a more refined regular expression.
  • b)
    For searches based upon our predefined Kibana templates:
    On the dashboard, click on Open and use the search template Requests - GATEWAY Troubleshooting - Events.

Log messages

Log messages are generated by system components. These messages can be viewed in the Log Viewer (Kibana).

Alternatively, log messages may be forwarded to a second Syslog located in the management network.

Events

Events are created by rules based on log messages. Events can be alerted, i.e. sent by email, create a web request or to a specific syslog server. The alerting methods can be configured in "Log Settings" - "Event Notification Channels".

  • There are two types of events:
  • Internal events are defined by Airlock. Those events can't be changed by the administrator. They may be changed with product updates in the future.
  • Customizable events cover events that are highly dependent on the Airlock usage scenario, i.e. the number of requests per second.
