path

Elasticsearch accepts new data on HTTP query path "/_bulk". But it is also possible to serve Elasticsearch behind a reverse proxy on a subpath. This option defines such path on the fluent-bit side. It simply adds a path prefix in the indexing HTTP POST URI.

buffer_size

This option is useful for debugging purposes where is required to read full responses, note that response size grows depending of the number of records inserted. To set an unlimited amount of memory set this value to False, otherwise the value must be according to the Unit Size specification.

logstash_prefix

When Logstash_Format is enabled, the Index name is composed using a prefix and the date, e.g: If Logstash_Prefix is equals to 'mydata' your index will become 'mydata-YYYY.MM.DD'. The last string appended belongs to the date when the data is being generated.

logstash_dateformat

Time format (based on strftime) to generate the second part of the Index name.

time_key

When Logstash_Format is enabled, each record will get a new timestamp field. The Time_Key property defines the name of that field.

time_key_format

When Logstash_Format is enabled, this property defines the format of the timestamp.

include_tag_key

When enabled, it append the Tag name to the record.

tag_key

When Include_Tag_Key is enabled, this property defines the key name for the tag.

generate_id

When enabled, generate _id for outgoing records. This prevents duplicate records when retrying ES.

replace_dots

When enabled, replace field name dots with underscore, required by Elasticsearch 2.0-2.3.

trace_output
