Installation

This gem is hosted at RubyGems.org and can be installed using:

Installing google-fluentd will also install and configure the gem.

Configuration

To embed insertIds into log entries, specify @type add_insert_ids in a filter clause of your Fluentd configuration file, for example:

<filter **>
  @type add_insert_ids
  insert_id_key my_insert_id_field_name # Optional.
</filter>

insert_id_key can be used to customize the insertId field name.

To send logs to Google Cloud Logging, specify @type google_cloud in a match clause of your Fluentd configuration file, for example:

<match **>
  @type google_cloud
</match>
