Build Status GoDoc

A structured event logger for Fluentd (Golang)

How to install

go get github.com/fluent/fluent-logger-golang/fluent

Usage

Install the package with go get and use import to include it in your project.

import "github.com/fluent/fluent-logger-golang/fluent"

Example

package main

import (
  "github.com/fluent/fluent-logger-golang/fluent"
  "fmt"
  //"time"
)

func main() {
  logger, err := fluent.New(fluent.Config{})
  if err != nil {
    fmt.Println(err)
  }
  defer logger.Close()
  tag := "myapp.access"
  var data = map[string]string{
    "foo":  "bar",
    "hoge": "hoge",
  }
  error := logger.Post(tag, data)
  // error := logger.PostWithTime(tag, time.Now(), data)
  if error != nil {
    panic(error)
  }
}

data must be a value like map[string]literal, map[string]interface{}, struct or msgp.Marshaler. Logger refers tags msg or codec of each fields of structs.

Setting config values

f := fluent.New(fluent.Config{FluentPort: 80, FluentHost: "example.com"})

WriteTimeout

Sets the timeout for Write call of logger.Post. Since the default is zero value, Write will not time out.

Async

Enable asynchronous I/O (connect and write) for sending events to Fluentd. The default is false.

ForceStopAsyncSend

When Async is enabled, immediately discard the event queue on close() and return (instead of trying MaxRetry times for each event in the queue before returning) The default is false.

RequestAck

Sets whether to request acknowledgment from Fluentd to increase the reliability of the connection. The default is false.

FAQ

Does this logger support the features of Fluentd Forward Protocol v1?

“the features” includes heartbeat messages (for TCP keepalive), TLS transport and shared key authentication.

This logger doesn’t support those features. Patches are welcome!
