We have covered Graylog a fair bit, but to make the most of all it’s functionality we need to upgrade to an Enterprise license. Now before you start screaming “I want a FREE solution” Graylog Enterprise is free for up to 5GB of data a day, and if you are using more than that then you should be paying for it.
First we need to create an account by going to https://www.graylog.org/downloads and completing the form shown below.
You will receive an email with contains instructions for getting your license key. Once you have your key you need to head back to Graylog and import our key. Go to the “Systems” Tab and select “License”. Then select the “Import New License” button and paste in your license.
You will then receive a message that your instance is activated, and your license will show under installed licenses on the same page.
That’s it, we are now licensed and ready to make use of other tools. Check back for a tutorial for adding thread feeds to our Graylog server.
