sharedKey string No -

BufferStorage 🔗︎

BufferStorage is the Service Section Configuration of fluent-bit 🔗︎

Variable Name Type Required Default Description
storage.path string No - Set an optional location in the file system to store streams and chunks of data. If this parameter is not set, Input plugins can only use in-memory buffering.
storage.sync string No normal Configure the synchronization mode used to store the data into the file system. It can take the values normal or full.
storage.checksum string No Off Enable the data integrity check when writing and reading data from the filesystem. The storage layer uses the CRC32 algorithm.
storage.backlog.mem_limit string No 5M If storage.path is set, Fluent Bit will look for data chunks that were not delivered and are still in the storage layer, these are called backlog data. This option configure a hint of maximum value of memory to use when processing these records.

InputTail 🔗︎

InputTail defines Fluentbit tail input configuration The tail input plugin allows to monitor one or several text files. It has a similar behavior like tail -f shell command. 🔗︎

Variable Name Type Required Default Description
storage.type string No memory Specify the buffering mechanism to use. It can be memory or filesystem.
Buffer_Chunk_Size string No 32k Set the buffer size for HTTP client when reading responses from Kubernetes API server. The value must be according to the Unit Size specification.
Buffer_Max_Size string No Buffer_Chunk_Size Set the limit of the buffer size per monitored file. When a buffer needs to be increased (e.g: very long lines), this value is used to restrict how much the memory buffer can grow. If reading a file exceed this limit, the file is removed from the monitored file list. The value must be according to the Unit Size specification.
Path string No - Pattern specifying a specific log files or multiple ones through the use of common wildcards.
Path_Key string No - If enabled, it appends the name of the monitored file as part of the record. The value assigned becomes the key in the map.
Exclude_Path string No - Set one or multiple shell patterns separated by commas to exclude files matching a certain criteria, e.g: exclude_path=*.gz,*.zip
Refresh_Interval string No 60 The interval of refreshing the list of watched files in seconds.
Rotate_Wait string No 5 Specify the number of extra time in seconds to monitor a file once is rotated in case some pending data is flushed.
Ignore_Older string No - Ignores files that have been last modified before this time in seconds. Supports m,h,d (minutes, hours,days) syntax. Default behavior is to read all specified files.
Skip_Long_Lines string No Off When a monitored file reach it buffer capacity due to a very long line (Buffer_Max_Size), the default behavior is to stop monitoring that file. Skip_Long_Lines alter that behavior and instruct Fluent Bit to skip long lines and continue processing other lines that fits into the buffer size.
DB *string No - Specify the database file to keep track of monitored files and offsets.
DB_Sync string No Full Set a default synchronization (I/O) method. Values: Extra, Full, Normal, Off. This flag affects how the internal SQLite engine do synchronization to disk, for more details about each option please refer to this section.
Mem_Buf_Limit string No - Set a limit of memory that Tail plugin can use when appending data to the Engine. If the limit is reach, it will be paused; when the data is flushed it resumes.
Parser string No - Specify the name of a parser to interpret the entry as a structured message.
Key string No log When a message is unstructured (no parser applied), it's appended as a string under the key name log. This option allows to define an alternative name for that key.
Tag string No - Set a tag (with regex-extract fields) that will be placed on lines read.
Tag_Regex string No - Set a regex to extract fields from the file.
Multiline string No Off If enabled, the plugin will try to discover multiline messages and use the proper parsers to compose the outgoing messages. Note that when this option is enabled the Parser option is not used.
Multiline_Flush string No 4 Wait period time in seconds to process queued multiline messages
Parser_Firstline string No - Name of the parser that machs the beginning of a multiline message. Note that the regular expression defined in the parser must include a group name (named capture)
Parser_N string No - Optional-extra parser to interpret and structure multiline entries. This option can be used to define multiple parsers, e.g: Parser_1 ab1, Parser_2 ab2, Parser_N abN.
Docker_Mode string No Off If enabled, the plugin will recombine split Docker log lines before passing them to any parser as configured above. This mode cannot be used at the same time as Multiline.
Docker_Mode_Flush string No 4 Wait period time in seconds to flush queued unfinished split lines.

FilterKubernetes 🔗︎

FilterKubernetes Fluent Bit Kubernetes Filter allows to enrich your log files with Kubernetes metadata. 🔗︎

Variable Name Type Required Default Description
Match string No kubernetes.* Match filtered records (default:kube.*)
Buffer_Size string No 32k Set the buffer size for HTTP client when reading responses from Kubernetes API server. The value must be according to the Unit Size specification.
Kube_URL string No https://kubernetes.default.svc:443 API Server end-point (default:https://kubernetes.default.svc:443)
Kube_CA_File string No /var/run/secrets/kubernetes.io/serviceaccount/ca.crt CA certificate file (default:/var/run/secrets/kubernetes.io/serviceaccount/ca.crt)
Kube_CA_Path string No - Absolute path to scan for certificate files
Kube_Token_File string No /var/run/secrets/kubernetes.io/serviceaccount/token Token file (default:/var/run/secrets/kubernetes.io/serviceaccount/token)
Kube_Tag_Prefix string No kubernetes.var.log.containers When the source records comes from Tail input plugin, this option allows to specify what's the prefix used in Tail configuration. (default:kube.var.log.containers.)
Merge_Log string No On When enabled, it checks if the log field content is a JSON string map, if so, it append the map fields as part of the log structure. (default:Off)
Merge_Log_Key string No - When Merge_Log is enabled, the filter tries to assume the log field from the incoming message is a JSON string message and make a structured representation of it at the same level of the log field in the map. Now if Merge_Log_Key is set (a string name), all the new structured fields taken from the original log content are inserted under the new key.
Merge_Log_Trim string No On When Merge_Log is enabled, trim (remove possible \n or \r) field values.
Merge_Parser string No - Optional parser name to specify how to parse the data contained in the log key. Recommended use is for developers or testing only.
