OpenFaaS Loki

A Loki powered log provider for OpenFaaS

Go Report Card GitHub branch checks state

OpenFaaS Loki implementes the new log provider interface from faas-provider. This means you can query Loki for your function logs with the faas-cli!

Limitations: This initial version does not support log tail streams. This means that faas-cli logs will alway behave as if --follow=false. Live tailing of the logs is currently being worked on.

All other OpenFaaS log behaviors should be fully supported. Issues are welcome if you notice a bug or room for improvement.

Install with Helm

  1. Clone this repo
  2. Determine the URL of your Loki installation, if you used the default Helm values to install Loki, this will be http://<service name>.<namespace>:3100
  3. Then install the openfaas-loki provider using Helm:
    helm repo add lucas
    helm repo update
    helm upgrade --install ofloki lucas/openfaas-loki \
        --namespace openfaas \
        --set lokiURL=http://loki.monitoring:3100 \
        --set logLevel=DEBUG
  4. Then update the gateway with the environment variable described in the NOTES output of the helm install. Currently, this can be done using
    kubectl -n openfaas set env deployment/gateway -c gateway -e logs_provider_url=http://ofloki-openfaas-loki.openfaas:9191/
    The environment variable is only needed on the gateway container.
  5. Test the installation using
    faas-cli store deploy nodeinfo
    echo "" | faas-cli invoke nodeinfo
    faas-cli logs nodeinfo --tail=3
