Fluentd

Fluentd is an event collector system. It is a generalized version of syslogd, which handles JSON objects for its log messages.

Architecture

Fluentd collects events from various data sources and writes them to files, database or other types of storages:

Web apps  ---+                 +--> file
             |                 |
             +-->           ---+
/var/log  ------>  Fluentd  ------> mail
             +-->           ---+
             |                 |
Apache    ----                 +--> Fluentd

Fluent also supports log transfer:

Web server

| Fluentd -------
+---------+|     |
 +---------+     |
                 |
Proxy server     |    Log server, Amazon S3, HDFS, ...
+---------+      +--> +---------+
| Fluentd ----------> | Fluentd ||
+---------+|     +--> +---------+|
 +---------+     |     +---------+
                 |
Database server  |
+---------+      |
| Fluentd ---------> mail
+---------+|
 +---------+

An event consists of tag, time and record. Tag is a string separated with '.' (e.g. myapp.access). It is used to categorize events. Time is a UNIX time recorded at occurrence of an event. Record is a JSON object.
