Gigaspaces log4j kafka elasticsearch


I would like to ship gigaspaces logs (GSA, GSC) to elasticsearch, without the use of ELK heavy logstash, but rather using log4j. Final setup CGC/GSA (using log4j, kafka-clients and jackson.core) -> kafka cluster -> Elasticsearch.

Do I only need to provide the additional libraries and replace the gs_logging.properties with a log4j properties file, or is there more to do to achieve this.

Second option would be CGC/GSA (using logback kafka-clients and logstash-encoder) -> elasticsearch. Either would be fine.

Thank you.

If you want GigaSpaces to use log4j you have to tell it to do so.

handlers=java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler, com.gigaspaces.logger.RollingFileHandler

The default uses our logger; you should set it to your log4j logger.
