AMQP output plugin for Fluentd

Fluentd output plugin to publish events to an amqp broker.

Events are published one by one using the Fluentd tag as the routing key, in JSON format like:

{ "key": "fluentd-tag", "timestamp": "fluentd-timestamp", "payload": "event-payload" }


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'fluent-plugin-amqp2'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install fluent-plugin-amqp2


<match pattern>
  type amqp

  # Set broker host and port
  host localhost
  port 5672

  # Set user and password for authentication
  user guest
  password guest

  # Configure amqp entities vhost, exchange id and type
  vhost /
  exchange my_exchange
  exchange_type topic
  exchange_durable true # optionally set exchange durability - default is true.
  passive false # If true, will not try to create the exchange - default is false.
  payload_only false # optional - default is false. if true, only the payload will be sent. if false, data format is { "key" => tag, "timestamp" => time, "payload" => record }.
  content_type application/octet-stream # optional - default is application/octet-stream. some amqp consumers will expect application/json.
  priority 0 # the priority for the message - requires bunny >= 1.1.6 and rabbitmq >= 3.5
