Logagent output filter for Kubernetes log enrichment

Output Filter: kubernetes-enrichment

Output filter plugin to add metadata such as Kubernetes pod information to container logs or route logs to different destinations by setting pod annotations.

Features:

  • Attach Kuberntes meta data (namespace, UUID, pod name, container name in pod, image name)
  • Evaluates pod annotations for Sematext Cloud:
  • sematext/logs-token=YOUR_LOGS_TOKEN to set the log index
  • sematext/logs-enabled=<true|false> to switch logging per pod on or off
  • sematext/logs-remove-fields=<field list> to remove specific log fields from pod logs

Applications:

  • Log routing based on Kubernetes annotations
  • Use Kuberntes API to get correct Kubernetes metadata
