Fluentd v1.12.0 has been released

Hi users!

We have released v1.12.0. ChangeLog is here.

in_tail: Support * in path with log rotation

fluentd v1.12.0 resolves the limitation for * with log rotation. follow_inodes true enables the combination of * in path with log rotation inside same directory and read_from_head true without log duplication problem.

path /path/to/*
read_from_head true
follow_inodes true  # without this parameter, log rotation may cause log duplication

in_tail: Support Linux Capability

Fluentd supports Linux capability via capng_c gem and in_tail now supports CAP_DAC_READ_SEARCH/CAP_DAC_OVERRIDE capabilities to read log files.

See official article for more details: Linux Capability

If you want more capability support in official plugins, file it on github.

Add fluent-ctl command

fluent-ctl provides same interface to control fluentd process, shutdown/restart/flush/reload.

  • On Linux, fluent-ctl uses Signals
  • On Windows, fluent-ctl uses Windows Event

Command example:

# Usage: fluent-ctl action PID
$ fluent-ctl shutdown 11111

Major bug fixes

  • output: Prevent retry.step from being called too many times in a short time

Enjoy logging!
