Snu-Sumologic Cookbook

Cookbook Version
Build Status

An opinionated implementation of installation and configuration of the Sumo
Logic collector using the sumologic-collector cookbook.


This cookbook requires at least Chef 12. It is continuously tested against
various OS and Chef combinations:

  • Chef (13, 12)


  • Ubuntu (16.04, 14.04)
  • Debian (8)
  • RHEL (7, 6)
  • Fedora (27)

It expects to find Sumo Logic API credentials in a data bag item named
sumologic within a data bag named credentials. That data bag item must
contain keys for both accessID and accessKey.


Add one or more of the included recipes to your run list and/or declare
instances of the included resources in your own recipes.



  • Runs the installation, configuration, and monitoring recipes.


  • Uses the snu_sumologic_collector resource to install the collector app, unconfigured, into /opt/SumoCollector.
  • This recipe performs no configuration and is ideal for e.g. baking the Sumo collector into a base system image.


  • Pulls Sumo Logic credentials out of the configured credentials data bag.
  • Uses the snu_sumologic_collector resource to configure and start the collector that should have already been installed by the installation recipe, and delete any Sumo sources that are no longer in Chef's resource collection.


  • Ensures Sensu is installed and makes the sensu user a member of the Sumo group so it's able to monitor logs in /opt/SumoCollector.
  • At some point in the future, this recipe will include configuring Sensu checks for the Sumo collector.



The configuration recipe pulls Sumo credentials out of a data bag that is
configurable via two attributes:

default['sumologic']['credentials']['bag_name'] = 'credentials'
default['sumologic']['credentials']['item_name'] = 'sumologic'

An empty config hash is defined that can be overridden to pass any additional
properties to the snu_sumologic_collector resource in the configuration

default['snu_sumologic']['config'] = {}



A wrapper around the sumologic_collector resource to:

  • Set some opinionated defaults based on our Sumo usage.
  • Manage the configured Sumo sources directory.


snu_sumologic_collector 'default' do
  sumo_access_id 'abc123'
  sumo_access_key 'def456'
  action %i[install configure enable start manage]


Action Description
:install Install the collector, unconfigured
:configure Configure an installed collector
:manage Delete no-longer-configured Sumo sources
:remove Uninstall the collector
:start Start the collector
:stop Stop the collector
:restart Restart the collector
:enable Enable the collector
:disable Disable the collector

* The :manage action works by using an accumulator pattern to have each
snu_sumologic_source_* resource register itself in the node's run state.
A source is considered to belong to the collector with a sync_sources
property that matches its source_json_directory property.

* The :manage action works by using an accumulator pattern to have each
snu_sumologic_source_* resource register itself with the collector at
compile time. The collector is then able to delete any sources on the
filesystem that are no longer being declared in Chef.


Property Default Description
sumo_access_id nil Needed for the :configure action
sumo_access_key nil Needed for the :configure action
dir '/opt/SumoCollector Set a default install dir
collector_name Set it to the unique Chef node name
sync_sources '/etc/sumo.d' Assume a .d-style sources configuration
ephemeral true Set a cloud-friendly default
clobber true Set a cloud-friendly default
runas_username 'root' Work around a bug in the Sumo install script
wrapper_java_initmemory 256 Set larger defaults for the Java heap size
wrapper_java_maxmemory 256 Set larger defaults for the Java heap size
sources Read from the run state A list of sources belonging to this collector
* * *

* All other properties are identical to those in the sumologic_collector


A wrapper around the sumo_source_local_file resource to:

  • Register each source in the node's run state to enable accumulation and management from a collector resource.
  • Set some opinionated defaults based on our Sumo usage.
  • Define an additional :delete action.


snu_sumo_source_local_file 'nginx' do
  path_expression '/var/log/nginx.log'
  action :create


Action Description
:create Create a config file for the source
:delete Delete the source's config file


Property Default Description
source_json_directory '/etc/sumo.d' The .d-style source config dir
time_zone 'UTC' Default all logs to UTC
force_time_zone true Force logs to be parsed into UTC
* * *

* All other properties are identical to those in the sumo_source_local_file
