I love AWS and FreeBSD but sometimes they don’t love each other. Some AWS services treat FreeBSD as a second class citizen. One such way is the AWS awslogs-agent-setup.py script. The actual daemon is just some python that runs fine, but the installer is Linux only. So I adjusted the install script to install on FreeBSD. It works well, even though my Python foo is not the strongest and my sh scripting is even worse. 🙂 Take a look at the script and use at your own risk. Any feedback is appreciated.
