HTTP-Request

Purpose

http_request(str)

Performs a http request to target and returns the result of said request.

Note

this function is very slow and therefore we suggest using it only seldomly to insure adequate performance.

Example

The following example performs a http request and writes the returned value to a file.

module(load="../plugins/imtcp/.libs/imtcp")
module(load="../plugins/fmhttp/.libs/fmhttp")
input(type="imtcp" port="13514")

template(name="outfmt" type="string" string="%$!%\n")

if $msg contains "msgnum:" then {
     set $.url = "http://www.rsyslog.com/testbench/echo-get.php?content=" & ltrim($msg);
     set $!reply = http_request($.url);
     action(type="omfile" file="rsyslog.out.log" template="outfmt")
}
