Hey all!

A quick announcement: we are moving from gitter to discord for our community chat. You can join us here: https://discord.gg/jm97nzy (see channels in the vector category).

Details:

As the team supporting vector and building its community, we've found a number of issues using gitter for this purpose:

  • Poor notifications
  • Poor editing experience
  • Poor mobile support

We hope having people come to discord instead will result in more messages being seen and responded to.

We also hope to move more of our general development discussions to discord as well to make it easier for people to follow along and contribute.

For more detailed support issues, Github Issues is still the best place to ensure that the they are seen, triaged, and responded to.

The link on the website and other pointers will be updated shortly.

Hope to see you there! We also welcome any feedback on how we can better support the vector community.

I'm evaluating Vector to replace fluent, one thing I have noticed is the absolute write limit to s3 is significantly slower than fluentd. Is there a way to improve throughput ?

hello
a generic question about periodic health check:

  • we have "--require-healthy" to check problem on startup
  • we have unit tests to assist in the development of complex topology

recently, our kafka instance (sink) was down and errors started to appear in the console -> so the service stopped to work but didn't fall
it fell only after restart as "--require-healthy" flag is specified and sink is not healthy

there was a command we could trigger periodically which returned >0 exit code if health didn't pass -> but it was removed in the latest versions
a generic question: is it possible to setup health check (ex.: in kubernetes) somehow, any workarounds? thanks

Hey all,

Does vector support the Web Identity Provider in STS? This feature was merged into Rusoto in Dec '19 (rusoto/rusoto#1577), but I'm struggling to implement.

As far as I'm aware, everything is set up correctly and Web Identity Provider works with our other k8s services (and my set-up confirmed by this guide here: https://dev.to/pnehrer/a-story-of-rusty-containers-queues-and-the-role-of-assumed-identity-kl2) but when I'm trying to put to a CloudWatch log group it won't assume the correct SA.

Hello, is there a way to use Vector's transformation to "clean" the fields? For example, I used the tokenize transformation to get some of the values from some log, but now, I have values like {"protocol":":udp", "source_port":":57714->", etc}
Is there a way to clean them? Like removing the : in protocol and the : and -> in source_port?

HI, how I can disable rate_limits on errors (I set drop_invalid to true for json_parser)?
For example
Nov 25 12:11:45.976 WARN transform{name=nginx_parse_json type=json_parser}: vector::internal_events::json: 19 "Event failed to parse as JSON" events were rate limited. rate_limit_secs=5
Vyacheslav Rakhinskiy
@rakhinskiy
And how I can debug this json? I start vector with LOG="trace" and can see only WARN for this event

Hi there, I'm stuck at write log to file with correct timezone.
[sinks.all]
inputs = ["in"]
type = "file"
path = "/tmp/%Y-%m-%d/%H.log"
encoding.codec = "text"


The time is UTC based where I need it in Local Timezone (+7 in my case). Is there anyway to achieve this with Vector? I've searched around but no luck.

Hi
I have a rust tcp server running at 4000, when I try to start the vector to get the tcp metrics am getting

ERROR source{component_kind="source" component_name=my_source_id component_type=socket}: vector::sources::util::tcp: Failed to bind to listener socket. error=TCP bind failed: Address already in use (os error 98)
Jun 23 22:47:43.438 ERROR source{component_kind="source" component_name=my_source_id component_type=socket}: vector::topology: An error occurred that vector couldn't handle.
Here is my vector.toml
