Fluentd is an open source data collector which can be used to collect event logs from multiple sources. It filters, buffers and transforms the data before forwarding to one or more destinations, including Logstash.

Install the output plugin

  Our fluentd output plugin is available as a gem on RubyGems.
gem install fluent-plugin-logit -v 0.1.0

Configure the output plugin

Add the following to your fluentd configuration.

<match **>
  @type logit
  port your-port
  buffer_type file
  buffer_path /tmp/
  flush_interval 2s

Ensure the match clause is correct for the events you wish to send to Logit. Buffering is optional but recommended.
