Fluentd at Slideshare
June 28, 2013
Fluentd is an open-source program that we have been using for the past year and a half that helps us with log management, carrying them from point A to point B in a fast and reliable way.
Among a lot of good things about Fluentd, here are the three we like the most:
- Everything that goes in and out of Fluentd is JSON
- Fluentd is written in about 2,000 lines of open source Ruby code. When you have an issue, you can just read/patch the code.
- There is already a huge plugins library — about 150 — that allows you to import, filter and export your data into a variety of systems.
If you want to know more about how we are using Fluentd, please have a look at one of our projects in which we are using it.
