This module will connect to the specified URL in either plain HTTP or HTTPS mode. Each event is transferred in a single POST request. The module then waits for a response containing a successful status code (200, 201, or 202). It will reconnect and retry the delivery if the remote has closed the connection or a timeout is exceeded while waiting for the response. This HTTP-level acknowledgment ensures that no messages are lost during transfer.
This mandatory directive specifies the URL where the module should POST the event data. The module operates in plain HTTP or HTTPS mode depending on the URL provided, and connects to the hostname specified in the URL. If the port number is not explicitly indicated in the URL, it defaults to port 80 for HTTP and port 443 for HTTPS.
This optional directive specifies an additional header to be added to each HTTP request.
This directive sets the Content-Type HTTP header to the string specified. The Content-Type is set to
This boolean directive specifies that the connection should be allowed without certificate verification. If set to TRUE, the connection will be allowed even if the remote HTTPS server presents an unknown or self-signed certificate. The default value is FALSE: the remote HTTPS server must present a trusted certificate.
This specifies the path to a directory containing certificate authority (CA) certificates, which will be used to check the certificate of the remote HTTPS server. The certificate filenames in this directory must be in the OpenSSL hashed format. A remote’s self-signed certificate (which is not signed by a CA) can also be trusted by including a copy of the certificate in this directory.
This specifies the path of the certificate authority (CA) certificate, which will be used to check the certificate of the remote HTTPS server. To trust a self-signed certificate presented by the remote (which is not signed by a CA), provide that certificate instead.
This specifies the path of the certificate file to be used for the HTTPS handshake.
This specifies the path of the certificate key file to be used for the HTTPS handshake.
This specifies the path to a directory containing certificate revocation lists (CRLs), which will be consulted when checking the certificate of the remote HTTPS server. The certificate filenames in this directory must be in the OpenSSL hashed format.
This specifies the path of the certificate revocation list (CRL) which will be consulted when checking the certificate of the remote HTTPS server.
With this directive, a password can be supplied for the certificate key file defined in HTTPSCertKeyFile. This directive is not needed for passwordless private keys.
This optional directive can be used to set the permitted SSL cipher list, overriding the default. Use the format described in the ciphers(1ssl) man page.
This boolean directive allows you to enable data compression when sending data over the network. The compression mechanism is based on the zlib compression library. If the directive is not specified, it defaults to FALSE (the compression is disabled).Note
Some Linux packages (for example, Debian) use the OpenSSL library provided by the OS and may not support the zlib compression mechanism. The module will emit a warning on startup if the compression support is missing. The generic deb/rpm packages are bundled with a zlib-enabled libssl library.
This directive can be used to set the allowed SSL/TLS protocol(s). It takes a comma-separated list of values which can be any of the following:
TLSv1.2. By default, the TLSv1, TLSv1.2, and TLSv1.2 protocols are allowed. Note that the OpenSSL library shipped by Linux distributions may not support SSLv2 and SSLv3, in which case these will not work even if enabled with HTTPSSSSLProtocol.
This optional directive specifies the host name used for Server Name Indication (SNI) in HTTPS mode.
This optional directive is used to specify the IP address of the proxy server in case the module should send event data through a proxy.Note
The om_http module supports HTTP proxying only. SOCKS4/SOCKS5 proxying is not supported.
This optional directive is used to specify the port number required to connect to the proxy server.
The following procedures are exported by om_http.
Set the path in the HTTP request to the string specified. This is useful if the URL is dynamic and parameters such as event ID need to be included in the URL. Note that the string must be URL encoded if it contains reserved characters.
This configuration reads log messages from file and forwards them via HTTPS.
