Gem Version

Logz.io plugin for Fluentd

With fluent-plugin-logzio you will be able to use Logz.io as output the logs you collect with Fluentd.

Requirements

fluent-plugin-logzio Fluentd Ruby
>= 0.0.15 >= v0.14.0 >= 2.1
< 0.0.15 >= v0.12.0 >= 1.9

Getting Started

  • Install Fluentd
  • gem install fluent-plugin-logzio
  • Make sure you have an account with Logz.io.
  • Configure Fluentd as below:

FluentD 1.0-style Example Configuration

This is an example only. Your needs in production may vary!

    <match **>
      @type logzio_buffered

      endpoint_url https://listener.logz.io:8071?token=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx&type=my_type

      output_include_time true
      output_include_tags true
      http_idle_timeout 10

      <buffer>
          @type memory
          flush_thread_count 4
          flush_interval 3s
          chunk_limit_size 16m      # Logz.io bulk limit is decoupled from chunk_limit_size. Set whatever you want.
          queue_limit_length 4096
      </buffer>
    </match>

FluentD 0.12-style Example Configuration

This is an example only. Your needs in production may vary!

    <match your_match>
      @type logzio_buffered
      endpoint_url https://listener.logz.io:8071?token=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx&type=my_type
      output_include_time true
      output_include_tags true
      output_tags_fieldname @log_name
      buffer_type    file
      buffer_path    /path/to/buffer/file
      flush_interval 10s
      buffer_chunk_limit 64m   # Logz.io bulk limit is decoupled from buffer_chunk_limit. Set whatever you want.
    </match>

Parameters

  • endpoint_url the url to Logz.io input where xxx-xxxx... is your Logz.io access token, and my_type is the type of your logs in Logz.io.
  • output_include_time should the appender add a timestamp to your logs on their process time. (recommended).
  • output_include_tags should the appender add the fluentd tag to the document, called "fluentd_tag" (which can be renamed, see next point).
  • output_tags_fieldname set the tag's fieldname, defaults to "fluentd_tag".
  • http_idle_timeout timeout in seconds that the http persistent connection will stay open without traffic.
  • retry_count How many times to resend failed bulks. Defaults to 4 times.
  • retry_sleep How long to sleep initially between retries, exponential step-off. Initial default is 2s.
  • bulk_limit Limit to the size of the Logz.io upload bulk. Defaults to 1000000 bytes leaving about 24kB for overhead.
  • bulk_limit_warning_limit Limit to the size of the Logz.io warning message when a record exceeds bulk_limit to prevent a recursion when Fluent warnings are sent to the Logz.io output. Defaults to nil (no truncation).
  • proxy_uri Your proxy uri. Default is nil
  • proxy_cert Your proxy cert. Default is nil

Release Notes

  • 0.0.18: Support proxy_uri and proxy_cert in the configuration file. Put logzio output plugin class under Fluent::Plugin module and thus work with multi workers.
  • 0.0.17: Optional truncate log messages when they are exceeding bulk size in warning logs
  • 0.0.16: More fluentD 1.0+ adjustments
  • 0.0.15: Support FluentD 1.0+. Split the chunk into bulk uploads, decoupling chunk_limit_size/buffer_chunk_limit from Logz.io bulk limit. Tunable bulk_limit and initial retry_sleep.
  • 0.0.14: Refactor send function to handle more cases, and retry in case of logzio connection failure.
  • 0.0.13: BREAKING - Removed non-buffered version. It's really not efficient, and should just not be used. If you are using this version, you should change to the buffered one.
  • 0.0.12: Catch exception when parsing YAML to ignore (instead of crash) not valid logs.
