Fluentd v1.7.1 has been released

Hi users!

We have released v1.7.1. ChangeLog is here. This release includes several enhancements and fixes.

parser_syslog: Add string parser for rfc3164 message

v1.7.1 introduces parser_type parameter to choose internal implementation for rfc3164 message.

parser_syslog uses regexp parser to parse rfc3164 message by default but it doesn't work for some patterns, see this issue. string parser avoids this problem.

Here is a configuration example:

  @type syslog
    parser_type string
  # other parameters...

string parser is 2x faster than regexp parser, so we recommend to use string parser for new deployment.

Major bug fixes

  • buf_file/buf_file_single: fix to ignore placeholder based path during resume
  • buf_file: Ensure to remove metadata file after buffer creation failure
  • server helper: Ignore ETIMEDOUT error in SSL_accept

Enjoy logging!
