Redhat iSCSI Connection Configuration

Making iSCSI connection from Redhat Linux server is easy to implement.

Requirement: iscsi-initiator-utils package has to be installed.
Redhat Server Name: saint
Ethernet MAC Address: 00:12:79:A5:81:6E
Redhat Server iqn Number:
iSCSI Server IP:
iSCSI Server iqn Number:

Giving Initiator Name as the server name makes easy to distinguish iscsi connections at the server side.
# vi /etc/iscsi/initiatorname.iscsi

assign an alias to the ethernet interface.
# iscsiadm -m iface -I intface0 –op=new

Associate interface's MAC address with ethernet interface.
# iscsiadm -m iface -I intface0 –op=update -n iface.hwaddress -v 00:12:79:A5:81:6E

Discover iSCSI server.
# iscsiadm -m discovery -t st -p -I intface0 -P 1

Make the connection automatic at startup.
# iscsiadm -m node -T -p -o update -n node.startup -v automatic

Sending Jboss Server Logs to Logstash Using Filebeat with Multiline Support

In addition to sending system logs to logstash, it is possible to add a prospector section to the filebeat.yml for jboss server logs. Sometimes jboss server.log has single events made up from several lines of messages. In such cases Filebeat should be configured for a multiline prospector.
Filebeat takes lines do not start with a date pattern (look at pattern in the multiline section "^[[:digit:]]{4}-[[:digit:]]{2}-[[:digit:]]{2}" and negate section is set to true) and combines them with the previous line that starts with a date pattern.

server.log file excerpt where DatePattern: yyyy-MM-dd-HH and ConversionPattern: %d %-5p [%c] %m%n
