Logging with EFK


I installed EFK on rancher cluster and I want to use this same installation for Rancher logging too.

When I go to Tools -> Logging in order to enable rancher logging I am able to select Elasticsearch or Fluentd.

When I select Elasticsearch or fluentd, I see that it requires IP addresses to the services.

I am curious how to use this existing EFK that i installed on the cluster itself?

Thanks and regards,

Does it allow you to use a hostname? You can create a Kubernetes service that points to your in-cluster EFK instance, and then use that service hostname in the Logging config.


Placeholder is given as https://ipaddress:9200 but i guess that it will be working also with hostname. I need to test that.

Thanks :slight_smile:
