Record Modifier

The Record Modifier Filter plugin allows to append fields or to exclude specific fields.

Configuration Parameters

The plugin supports the following configuration parameters: Remove_key and Allowlist_key are exclusive.
Key
Description
Record
Append fields. This parameter needs key and value pair.
Remove_key
If the key is matched, that field is removed.
Allowlist_key
If the key is not matched, that field is removed.
Whitelist_key
An alias of Allowlist_key for backwards compatibility.
Uuid_key
If set, the plugin appends uuid to each record. The value assigned becomes the key in the map.

Getting Started

In order to start filtering records, you can run the filter from the command line or through the configuration file.
This is a sample in_mem record to filter.
{"Mem.total"=>1016024, "Mem.used"=>716672, "Mem.free"=>299352, "Swap.total"=>2064380, "Swap.used"=>32656, "Swap.free"=>2031724}

Append fields

The following configuration file is to append product name and hostname (via environment variable) to record.
[INPUT]
Name mem
Tag mem.local
[OUTPUT]
Name stdout
Match *
[FILTER]
Name record_modifier
Match *
Record hostname ${HOSTNAME}
Record product Awesome_Tool
You can also run the filter from command line.
$ calyptia-fluent-bit -i mem -o stdout -F record_modifier -p 'Record=hostname ${HOSTNAME}' -p 'Record=product Awesome_Tool' -m '*'
The output will be
[0] mem.local: [1492436882.000000000, {"Mem.total"=>1016024, "Mem.used"=>716672, "Mem.free"=>299352, "Swap.total"=>2064380, "Swap.used"=>32656, "Swap.free"=>2031724, "hostname"=>"localhost.localdomain", "product"=>"Awesome_Tool"}]

Remove fields with Remove_key

The following configuration file is to remove 'Swap.*' fields.
[INPUT]
Name mem
Tag mem.local
[OUTPUT]
Name stdout

[FILTER]

Remove_key Swap.total
Remove_key Swap.used
Remove_key Swap.free
You can also run the filter from command line.
$ calyptia-fluent-bit -i mem -o stdout -F record_modifier -p 'Remove_key=Swap.total' -p 'Remove_key=Swap.free' -p 'Remove_key=Swap.used' -m '*'
The output will be
[0] mem.local: [1492436998.000000000, {"Mem.total"=>1016024, "Mem.used"=>716672, "Mem.free"=>295332}]
