JFrog Artifactory - OpenTelemetry Collector

Thumbnail icon Thumbnail icon

The Sumo Logic app for Artifactory provides insight into your JFrog Artifactory binary repository. The app provides preconfigured Dashboards that include an Overview of your system, Traffic, Requests and Access, Download Activity, Cache Deployment Activity, and Non-Cached Deployment Activity. Artifactory logs are sent to Sumo Logic through OpenTelemetry filelog receiver.

Fields creation in Sumo Logic for Artifactory

Following are the Tags which will be created as part of Artifactory app install if not already present.

  • sumo.datasource. Has fixed value of artifactory

Prerequisites

This section provides instructions for configuring log collection for Artifactory for the Sumo Logic app.

The Sumo Logic app for Artifactory collects data from the following logs:

  • artifactory.log. The main Artifactory log file that contains data on Artifactory server activity.
  • access.log. The security log containing important information about accepted and denied requests, configuration changes, and password reset requests. The originating IP address for each event is also recorded.
  • request.log. Generic HTTP traffic information similar to the Apache HTTPd request log.
  • traffic.log. A log that contains information about site traffic and file sizes.

For more details about Artifactory logs, refer to JFrog Logging and Artifactory Log Files.

Sumo Logic reads logs in the directory /var/opt/jfrog/artifactory/logs:

  • artifactory.log
  • access.log
  • request.log
  • traffic.*.log

To activate the traffic.log file, add the following parameter to your artifactory.system.properties file, located under $ARTIFACTORY/etc:

artifactory.traffic.collectionActive=true

A restart is required for traffic collection to take effect.

For Linux systems with ACL Support, the otelcol install process should have created the ACL grants necessary for the otelcol system user to access default log locations. You can verify the active ACL grants using the getfacl command. Install the ACL in your Linux environment, if not installed.

The required ACL may not be supported for some rare cases, for example, Linux OS Distro, which is officially not supported by Sumo Logic. In this case, you can run the following command to explicitly grant the permissions.

sudo setfacl -R -m d:u:otelcol-sumo:r-x,d:g:otelcol-sumo:r-x,u:otelcol-sumo:r-x,g:otelcol-sumo:r-x <PATH_TO_LOG_FILE>

Run the above command for all the log files in the directory that need to be ingested, which are not residing in the default location.

If Linux ACL Support is not available, traditional Unix-styled user and group permission must be modified. It should be sufficient to add the otelcol system user to the specific group that has access to the log files.

For Windows systems, log files which are collected should be accessible by the SYSTEM group. Use the following set of PowerShell commands if the SYSTEM group does not have access.

$NewAcl = Get-Acl -Path "<PATH_TO_LOG_FILE>"
# Set properties
$identity = "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM"
$fileSystemRights = "ReadAndExecute"
$type = "Allow"
# Create new rule
$fileSystemAccessRuleArgumentList = $identity, $fileSystemRights, $type
$fileSystemAccessRule = New-Object -TypeName System.Security.AccessControl.FileSystemAccessRule -ArgumentList $fileSystemAccessRuleArgumentList
# Apply new rule
$NewAcl.SetAccessRule($fileSystemAccessRule)
Set-Acl -Path "<PATH_TO_LOG_FILE>" -AclObject $NewAcl

Collection configuration and app installation

As part of data collection setup and app installation, you can select the App from App Catalog and click on Install App. Follow the steps below.

Step 1: Set up Collector

note

If you want to use an existing OpenTelemetry Collector, you can skip this step by selecting the Use an existing Collector option.

To create a new Collector:

  1. Select the Add a new Collector option.
  2. Select the platform where you want to install the Sumo Logic OpenTelemetry Collector.

This will generate a command that you can execute in the machine environment you need to monitor. Once executed, it will install the Sumo Logic OpenTelemetry Collector.

Artifactory-Collector

Step 2: Configure integration

In this step, you will configure the yaml required for the Artifactory Collection.

Path of the different log file configured to capture Artifactory logs is needed to be given here:

  • artifactory.log
  • access.log
  • request.log
  • traffic.*.log

You can add any custom fields which you want to tag along with the data ingested in sumo.

Click on the Download YAML File button to get the yaml file.

Artifactory-YAML

Step 3: Send logs to Sumo Logic

Once you have downloaded the yaml file as described in the previous step, follow the below steps based on your platform.

  1. Copy the yaml file to /etc/otelcol-sumo/conf.d/ folder in the Artifactory instance that needs to be monitored.
  2. Restart the collector using:
sudo systemctl restart otelcol-sumo

After successfully executing the above command, Sumo Logic will start receiving data from your host machine.

Click Next. This will install the app (dashboards and monitors) to your Sumo Logic Org.

Dashboard panels will start to fill automatically. It's important to note that each panel fills with data matching the time range query and received since the panel was created. Results won't immediately be available, but within 20 minutes, you'll see full graphs and maps.
