For a new project (will talk about it later), I needed to use Neo4J (graph database if you don’t know it yet). I tried to cover more features than the current existing Ansible roles available on Ansible Galaxy. More will come in the next weeks.

Select neo4j version neo4j_package: neo4j # community version #neo4j_package: neo4j-advanced #neo4j_package: neo4j-enterprise # Neo4j spatial plugin neo4j_install_spatial: false neo4j_spatial_version: '0.

On the server side, a Fluentd receiver will be there to get data from other Fluentd clients.
