Just noticed it this evening when setting up the new Graylog 1.0.1
- Log into your Graylog instance as an admin user
- Select System > Inputs
- Select "Random HTTP Message Generator" and launch the input
- Tweak it how you like it, save settings
Now, perform a * (all) search over the past 5 minutes. You should see a good number of messages being generated. Looks to be a good way to confirm that all of the moving parts to your Graylog setup are functional
 well, unless you missed all the crashing console messages, that is.
