Input apps are Seq Apps that extend Seq to support new protocols and queuing systems.
If your application already emits logs in a popular structured format such as Syslog, or GELF (Graylog Extended Log Format), Seq can ingest those logs directly using an input app.
The table below lists some of the most popular input apps.
You can find more Seq Apps on NuGet.org.
Seq Inputs are visible on the Ingestion page under Data > Ingestion. To add an app choose Install Input Apps.
Enter the Package id of the Input App you'd like to install. For example, we can install the app Seq.Input.Gelf to allow Seq to ingest events in the Graylog Extended Log Format (GELF).
After choosing Install the Ingestion page now has an Add Gelf Input button.
Click Add Gelf Input, configure the app and choose Save Changes. Now the Seq.Input.Gelf app is configured, is listed as a Seq input on the Ingestion page and is ready to receive data.
