  • Top 20 Observability Tools Every Startup Should Know About in 2022
    4 projects | dev.to | 21 Sep 2022
    Created and maintained by the creators of fluentd, fluentbit is a lightweight, fast, and scalable logging and metrics processor and forwarder. Built specifically for the cloud and containerized environments, it allows users to collect data from any source, enrich it with filters and forward it to the tool of their choice.
  • Development Environments with vcluster

    Check the names. That is the translation layer that vcluster makes for you. There are a couple of things to keep in mind when working with vclusters: Reserve resources enough for those StatefulSet pods: It is a good practice to have nodes with resources dedicated solely to these pods and make sure that the pods are deployed in those nodes. The intention is that the StatefulSet pods (vcluster control planes) will not run out of resources which would dramatically impact the performance of the vcluster. To do this, you can play with taints and nodeselectors in the nodes. Logs and Kubernetes metadata: Log Aggregators tools like [Fluentbit](https://fluentbit.io/) and [Grafana Promtail](https://grafana.com/docs/loki/latest/clients/promtail/) rely on the Kubernetes structure and naming convention. Log folders and files follow the kubernetes structure given by the host cluster. From the command above, you could see that the same pod has different names in vcluster and in the host. Therefore, if you deploy one of the observability tools mentioned before in the vcluster, the expected structures will not match the one in the host cluster.The consequence is that the vcluster will not be able to leverage the Kubernetes metadata, nor the log traces from the applications in that cluster. This issue is currently being addressed by the [Loft Labs](https://loft.sh/) team at the time of writing this post. The last interesting point to mention is the capability to pause/resume individual vcluster (StatefulSets). In case you do not want to destroy the entire environment created in the workshop you can just do:

    You can tail these logs and track build history over time. However, a much better option would be to use a custom logger like Winston or dedicated log monitoring agent like Fluentbit to forward these logs to a central location like Elasticsearch or any Log Management tool on the market.
  • Cats and Clouds – There Are No Pillars in Observability with Yoshi Yamaguchi

    And then they contacted some famous log collection projects such as the Fluent Bit and also others like Stanza as well as Syslog, I guess. And I didn't read the whole thread of the conversation around log collection. But now, they set the Stanza as the first implementation of OpenTelemetry logs. And in Stanza, the observIQ with Stanza is merged under the OpenTelemetry log repository, so that's the status. And then, they try to standardize the format of logs based on the Stanza format, such as what kind of information should be included in log.
  • Very confused with using fluentd to filter out PII sent to cloudwatch.

    Lastly, I know the question was around Fluentd - however if you are looking for super high performance I also recommend taking a look at Fluent Bit (https://fluentbit.io) it's more performant sub-project. Simliar functionality with grep (https://docs.fluentbit.io/manual/pipeline/filters/grep) exists, and there are examples of using the in-built LUA scripting for more processing type filtering (https://github.com/couchbase/couchbase-fluent-bit#redaction)

    Missing from you fluentbit setup - you need to add the parser "iptables" into parser.conf, which you can find in https://github.com/fluent/fluent-bit/blob/master/conf/parsers_extra.conf

    Yikes, considering that I wrote that parser, I probably should have remembered to include it!
