Terraform: creating a module for collecting AWS ALB logs in Grafana Loki

24 February 2024
 

 An example of creating a Terraform module to automate log collection from AWS Load Balancers in Grafana Loki. See how the scheme works in the Grafana Loki: collecting AWS LoadBalancer logs from S3 with Promtail Lambda blog. In short, ALB writes logs to an S3 bucket, from where they are picked up by a Lambda… Read More »

Grafana Loki: LogQL and Recoding Rules for metrics from AWS Load Balancer logs

24 February 2024
 

 I didn’t plan this post at all as I thought I would do it quickly, but it didn’t work out quickly, and I need to dig a little deeper into this topic. So, what we are talking about: we have AWS Load Balancers, logs from which are collected to Grafana Loki, see. Grafana Loki: collecting… Read More »

Grafana Loki: collecting AWS LoadBalancer logs from S3 with Promtail Lambda

25 November 2023
 

 Currently, we are able to collect our API Gateway logs from the CloudWatch Logs to Grafana Loki, see. Loki: collecting logs from CloudWatch Logs using Lambda Promtail. But in the process of migrating to Kubernetes, we have Application Load Balancers that can only write logs to S3, and we need to learn how to collect… Read More »

Grafana: values ​​from records in Loki logs, and dual-Y-axes panels in Grafana

19 August 2023
 

  We have a function in AWS Lambda, that is writing logs to CloudWatch Logs, from where with the lambda-promtail we are getting them to a Grafana Loki instance to use them in Grafana graphs. What the task is: in the logs, we have records about “Init duration” and “Max Memory Used” by Lambdas. There are… Read More »

Grafana Loki: performance optimization with Recording Rules, caching, and parallel queries

19 August 2023
 

  So, we have Loki installed from the chart in simple-scale mode, see Grafana Loki: architecture and running in Kubernetes with AWS S3 storage and boltdb-shipper. Loki is runnings on an AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service cluster, installed with Loki Helm chart, AWS S3 is used as a long-term store, and BoltDB Shipper is used to… Read More »

AWS: Grafana Loki, InterZone traffic in AWS, and Kubernetes nodeAffinity

19 August 2023
 

  Traffic in AWS is generally quite an interesting and sometimes complicated thing, I once wrote about it in the AWS: Cost optimization – services expenses overview and traffic costs in AWS. Now, it’s time to return to this topic again. So, what’s the problem: in AWS Cost Explorer, I’ve noticed that we have an… Read More »

VictoriaMetrics: deploying a Kubernetes monitoring stack

23 July 2023
 

  Now we have VictoriaMetrics + Grafana on a regular EC2 instance, launched with Docker Compose, see the VictoriaMetrics: an overview and its use instead of Prometheus. It was kind of a Proof of Concept, and it’s time to launch it “in an adult way” – in Kubernetes and all the configurations stored in a… Read More »

Loki: collecting logs from CloudWatch Logs using Lambda Promtail

20 May 2023
 

  Collecting logs in Grafana Loki with Kubernetes is very simple – we just launch Promtail in DaemonSet, configure it to read all data from /var/logs – and that’s it (in fact, we don’t specify anything at all – everything works out of the box from the Helm chart). But what about CloudWatch Logs? On my new… Read More »

Grafana Loki: alerts from the Loki Ruler and labels from logs

12 March 2023
 

  For general information on Grafana Loki, see the Grafana Loki: architecture and running in Kubernetes with AWS S3 storage and boltdb-shipper. Among other services that make up Loki, there is a separate service called ruler that is responsible for working with alerts that can be generated directly from logs. The idea is very simple:… Read More »
