Fluent Bit

Forward your logs to Logtail with Fluent Bit.

Setting up Fluent Bit is very straightforward:

  1. Install Fluent Bit on your server according to the guidelines.

  2. Install and set up Fluent Bit input plugins to suit your needs (e.g., Syslog).

  3. Modify the Fluent Bit [OUTPUT] configuration to start sending logs to your Logtail source. A basic configuration that forwards logs from all inputs to a single Logtail source could look like this:

/etc/td-agent-bit/td-agent-bit.conf
[SERVICE]
flush 1
[INPUT]
name tail
path /var/log/syslog
[OUTPUT]
name http
match *
tls On
host in.logtail.com
port 443
uri /
header Authorization Bearer YOUR_LOGTAIL_SOURCE_TOKEN
header Content-Type application/msgpack
format msgpack
retry_limit 5

Make sure to replaceYOUR_LOGTAIL_SOURCE_TOKENwith your own source token from Logtail.com.

You can learn more about Fluent Bit configuration from the official manual.

4. Once you're happy with the configuration restart the Fluent Bit service:

sudo service td-agent-bit restart

You should start seeing your logs in Logtail 🎉
