Important changes since beta.2

Here are the new features since the last Graylog v2.1 beta release:

Syslog severity mapper decorator

This release includes a new Syslog severity mapper decorator, that lets you automatically decorate Syslog severity level values to a more legible text. All of this during search time.

Add more flexibility to the network settings

We know some of you need to configure the Graylog web interface and REST API endpoint in many different ways. In this release we added more flexibility to customize those options, while keeping them simple to use, and compatible with your previous settings.

Please take into account that we modified the default settings to make the web interface and REST API to live under the same port on this version. Your Graylog web interface is available now by default in, and your Graylog REST API in

Performance improvements in dashboards

Another point we have been working on these days is to improve the dashboards performance, reducing the amount of CPU they use. Those of you using low-power computers to display dashboards for monitoring purposes will specially appreciate that!
