Something something OBS

A few months ago we were looking for log-collecting software at work, to shovel various app logs into OpenSearch. Couldn’t use the syslog plugin for elasticsearch, version too old, they didn’t play well.

I found Fluent Bit, saw works fine with OpenSearch and a lot of other things, can handle multiline logs and can do parsing with capture groups etc.

But… they don’t package for SLES / OpenSUSE anymore.

So I went and learnt how to package rpm stuffs, and after a few days / weeks I had a working build on OBS. Then I got it accepted into the server:monitoring repo and am updating it as new versions come out.
