Routes Resource

Routes let you configure logspout to hand-off logs to another system using logspout adapters, such as syslog.

Creating a route
POST /routes

Takes a JSON object like this:

	"adapter": "syslog",
	"address": "logaggregator.service.consul",
	"filter_name": "*_db",
	"filter_sources": ["stdout"],
	"options": {
        "append_tag": ".db"

The main fields are adapter and address. The field options is passed to the adapter. There are three filter fields: filter_name, filter_sources, and filter_id. These let you limit which containers or types of logs to route. Use filter_id to limit to a particular container by ID. Use filter_name to match against container names. These can include wildcards. Use filter_sources to limit to stdout or stderr, or soon syslog.

To route all logs of all types on all containers, don't specify any filter values.

The append_tag field of options is adapter specific to syslog. It lets you append to the tag of syslog packets for this route. By default the tag is <container-name>, so an append_tag value of .app would make the tag <container-name>.app.

And yes, you can just specify an IP and port for address, but you can also specify a name that resolves via DNS to one or more SRV records. That means this works great with Consul for service discovery.

Listing routes
GET /routes

Returns a JSON list of current routes:

        "id": "3631c027fb1b",
        "filter_name": "mycontainer",
        "adapter": "syslog",
        "address": ""
Viewing a route
GET /routes/<id>

Returns a JSON route object:

	"id": "3631c027fb1b",
	"filter_id": "a9efd0aeb470",
	"filter_sources": ["stderr"],
	"adapter": "syslog",
	"address": ""
Deleting a route
DELETE /routes/<id>
