Short Description
Forwards the events of OSE to an external logging platform
Full Description

General idea

We at @SchweizerischeBundesbahnen need to host all the OpenShift events outside our OSE-cluster as it would flood our etcd datastore if we keep the events of all projects for more than one day.
So this tools just attaches to the kubernetes API and logs all the events to console where they are grabbed and sent to our central logging environment.

Syslog forwarding

The standard mode for this applicaiton is to write to standard out. If you wish to send to Syslog instead, you can define SYSLOG_SERVER as an environment variable, and we will forward the logs the the syslog server instead of sending the events to the console/standard out. If you wish to send to both a syslog server as well as standard out, you can define the DEBUG environment variable and it will send to both standard out and the defined syslog server.


# Create a project & a service-account
oc project logging
oc create serviceaccount ose-eventforwarder

# Add a new role to your cluster-policy:
oc create -f deploy/clusterPolicy-forward.yaml

# Add the role to the service-account
oc adm policy add-cluster-role-to-user ose:eventforwarder system:serviceaccount:logging:ose-eventforwarder

# Deploy the new pod
oc create configmap forward-config \
    --from-literal=syslog.server=\<syslogserver\>:\<syslogport\> \
    --from-literal=syslog.tag=\<syslog tag\>
oc create -f deploy/deploymentConfig.yaml

Just create a 'oc new-app' from building the dockerfile or get it from here Dockerhub.
