Humio CLI

A CLI for managing and sending data to Humio.

This repository also contains Humio GoLang API client you can use to build your own tools.


$ brew tap humio/humio
$ brew install humioctl
Linux (via Snapcraft)
$ sudo snap install humioctl


To get started just write:

$ humioctl

and you will be asked to connect to your Humio cluster. To list all commands use:

$ humioctl help

Will print all the different options and commands currently supported.

Sending Logs

$ tail -f /var/log/system.log | humio ingest

# or

$ humioctl ingest --tail=/var/log/system.log

You can have Humio's UI open and tail the newly imported data using the -open flag.

Installing a Community Parser

Find a parser at humio/community and install it using the CLI.

For instance if you wanted to install an AccessLog parser you could use.

humio parsers install accesslog

This would install the parser at: humio/comminity/parsers/accesslog/default.yaml. Since log formats can vary slightly you can install one of the other variations:

humio parsers install accesslog/utc

Which would install the humio/comminity/parsers/accesslog/utc.yaml parser.

@label and @session

When streaming data into Humio using the ingest command all events will be annotated with @label and @session attributes. @label gives you a way to tag your streams to easily find them again e.g.:

$ humioctl ingest -label=work-related -tail=/var/log/mysql.log
@label = "work-related" | groupby(loglevel)

@session is a unique id that is generated for each execution of the humio binary. This allows you to find results for this session and nothing else.

Environment Variables

When use humio login it will write your API token and server address into .humioconfig in your home dir.

The CLI will always have environment variables take precedence over values form your ~/.humioconfig file.

# Your account API token. You can find your token in Humio's UI under
# 'Your Account' in the account menu.

# A file containing the auth token to use for authorization
# useful in conjunction with Humio's generated root token file.
# If this is set it takes precedence over HUMIO_API_TOKEN.

# The address of the Humio server. E.g.,
# or http://localhost:8080/

# Disable color in terminal output
