GELF (Graylog Extended Log Format)

What is GELF?


GELF is a JSON-based, structured log format popularized by Graylog. It consists of a set of predefined event fields, such as the event timestamp, hostname, severity, and long and short messages, and supports additional custom fields for application-specific information.

In the world of NXLog

GELF is one of the many log formats NXLog supports. NXLog can collect or forward logs in Graylog Extended Log Format (GELF) and has a specialized Graylog Extended Log Format (GELF) module for parsing and formatting GELF logs.
