This product is the Rsyslog project’s interpretation and custom configuration of 0x4447, allowing you to collect logs from your AWS VPC over SSL and stream them to an existing Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose stream for further analysis.

Moreover, the solution aims to ensure that no personalized data is lost. This means that if the instance is accidentally terminated, you can roll back to the original configuration, giving you the peace of mind you deserve.

How it works

If you already have a dataflow established in your AWS account, all you need to do is provide the name of the flow at deployment time, and the logs will automatically be routed to the dataflow.

Additionally, 0x4447 provides an additional bash script for auto-configuring EC2 instances. The scripts automatically configure the server taking into account all best practices and allow a cloud engineer to quickly configure pre-existing servers or automate the configuration of new ones.

There are no strict restrictions on the number of clients that can connect to the server. Instead, you are primarily limited by the bandwidth capabilities of the EC2 instance. If you need additional bandwidth, change the instance type to a larger one by updating the CloudFormation file.
