Fluent::Mixin::RewriteTagName Build Status

Overview

Fluentd mixin plugin to provides placeholder function for rewriting tag for your any plugins as like fluent-plugin-rewrite-tag-filter. It will let you get easy to implement tag placeholder for your own plugins.

Placeholders

It supportes these placeholder for rewriting tag.

  • ${tag}
  • __TAG__
  • ${tag_parts[n]}
  • __TAG_PARTS[n]__
  • ${hostname}
  • __HOSTNAME__

The placeholder of ${tag_parts[n]} and __TAG_PARTS[n]__ acts accessing the index which split the tag with "." (dot).
For example with td.apache.access tag, it will get td by ${tag_parts[0]} and apache by ${tag_parts[1]}.

Note

  • range expression ${tag_parts[0..2]} is also supported. see unit test.

Placeholder Option

  • hostname_command

By default, execute command as hostname to get full hostname.
On your needs, it could override hostname command using hostname_command option.
It comes short hostname with hostname_command hostname -s configuration specified.

Configuration

Adding this mixin plugin, it will enabled to use these placeholder in your plugins.

# input plugin example
<source>
  type              foo_bar

  # it will be rewrited to be 'customprefix.web10-222' when short hostname is 'web10-222'.
  tag               customprefix.${hostname}
  
  # to use short hostname placeholder, add option like below.
  hostname_command             hostname -s
</source>
# output plugin example
<match test.foo>
  type  foo_bar
  
  # it will be rewrited to be 'customprefix.test.foo'.
  tag   customprefix.${tag}
</match>

Another examples are written in unit test.

Usage

1. edit gemspec

add dependency for .gemspec file like below. For more detail, see gemspec example

spec.add_runtime_dependency "fluent-mixin-rewrite-tag-name"

2. activate fluent-mixin-rewrite-tag-name for your plugin

It is the instruction in the case of adding fluent-plugin-foobar.

$ cd fluent-plugin-foobar
$ vim fluent-plugin-foobar.gemspec # edit gemspec
$ bundle install --path vendor/bundle # or just type `bundle install`

3. edit your plugin to implement

It is a quick guide to enable your plugin to use RewriteTagNameMixin.
The key points of implmentation is just four below.

  • add require 'fluent/mixin/rewrite_tag_name' at the top of source
  • in the case of output plugin, add include Fluent::HandleTagNameMixin
    this is required if you will use 'remove_tag_prefix' option together
  • add include Fluent::Mixin::RewriteTagName in class after HandleTagNameMixin
  • add emit_tag = tag.dup and filter_record(emit_tag, time, record) before Engine.emit
implement example for input plugin
require 'fluent/mixin/rewrite_tag_name'

module Fluent
  class FooBarInput < Fluent::Input
    Plugin.register_input('foo_bar', self)

    # ...snip...

    include Fluent::HandleTagNameMixin
    include Fluent::Mixin::RewriteTagName    
    config_param :hostname_command, :string, :default => 'hostname'

    # ...snip...

    def configure(conf)
      super

      # ...snip...

      # add a error handling 
      if ( !@tag && !@remove_tag_prefix && !@remove_tag_suffix && !@add_tag_prefix && !@add_tag_suffix )
        raise Fluent::ConfigError, "foo_bar: missing remove_tag_prefix, remove_tag_suffix, add_tag_prefix or add_tag_suffix."
      end      
    end

    # ...snip...

    def emit_message(tag, message)
      emit_tag = tag.dup
      filter_record(emit_tag, time, message)
      Engine.emit(emit_tag, Engine.now, message)
    end

    # ...snip...

  end
end
implement example for output plugin
require 'fluent/mixin/rewrite_tag_name'

class Fluent
  class FooBarOutput < Fluent::Output
    Fluent::Plugin.register_output('foo_bar', self)

    include Fluent::Mixin::RewriteTagName
    config_param :hostname_command, :string, :default => 'hostname'

    # ...snip...

    def configure(conf)
      super

      # ...snip...

      # add a error handling 
      if ( !@tag && !@remove_tag_prefix && !@remove_tag_suffix && !@add_tag_prefix && !@add_tag_suffix )
        raise Fluent::ConfigError, "foo_bar: missing remove_tag_prefix, remove_tag_suffix, add_tag_prefix or add_tag_suffix."
      end      
    end

    # ...snip...

    def emit(tag, es, chain)
      es.each do |time, record|
        emit_tag = tag.dup
        filter_record(emit_tag, time, record)
        Fluent::Engine.emit(emit_tag, time, record)
      end
      chain.next
    end

    # ...snip...

  end
end
