Throttle Filter


A sentry plugin to throttle logs. Logs are grouped by a configurable key. When a group exceeds a configuration rate, logs are dropped for this group.



group_bucket_limit (int, optional)

Maximum number logs allowed per groups over the period of group_bucket_period_s

Default: 6000

group_bucket_period_s (int, optional)

This is the period of of time over which group_bucket_limit applies

Default: 60

group_drop_logs (bool, optional)

When a group reaches its limit, logs will be dropped from further processing if this value is true

Default: true

group_key (string, optional)

Used to group logs. Groups are rate limited independently

Default: kubernetes.container_name

group_reset_rate_s (int, optional)

After a group has exceeded its bucket limit, logs are dropped until the rate per second falls below or equal to group_reset_rate_s.

Default: group_bucket_limit/group_bucket_period_s

group_warning_delay_s (int, optional)

When a group reaches its limit and as long as it is not reset, a warning message with the current log rate of the group is emitted repeatedly. This is the delay between every repetition.

Default: 10 seconds

Fluentd config result:

<filter **>
  @type throttle
