labels (filter.ArrowMap, optional)

Using the Labels map, Kubernetes label to Loki label mapping can be configured. Example: {"app" : "$PROGRAM"}

Default: -

url (string, optional)

Specifies the hostname or IP address and optionally the port number of the service that can receive log data via gRPC. Use a colon (:) after the address to specify the port number of the server. For example: grpc://

Default: -

time_reopen (int, optional)

The time to wait in seconds before a dead connection is reestablished.

Default: 60

disk_buffer (*DiskBuffer, optional)

This option enables putting outgoing messages into the disk buffer of the destination to avoid message loss in case of a system failure on the destination side. For details, see the Syslog-ng DiskBuffer options.

Default: false

batch-lines (int, optional)

Description: Specifies how many lines are flushed to a destination in one batch. The syslog-ng OSE application waits for this number of lines to accumulate and sends them off in a single batch. Increasing this number increases throughput as more messages are sent in a single batch, but also increases message latency. For example, if you set batch-lines() to 100, syslog-ng OSE waits for 100 messages.

Default: -

batch-timeout (int, optional)

Description: Specifies the time syslog-ng OSE waits for lines to accumulate in the output buffer. The syslog-ng OSE application sends batches to the destinations evenly. The timer starts when the first message arrives to the buffer, so if only few messages arrive, syslog-ng OSE sends messages to the destination at most once every batch-timeout() milliseconds.

Default: -

retries (int, optional)

The number of times syslog-ng OSE attempts to send a message to this destination. If syslog-ng OSE could not send a message, it will try again until the number of attempts reaches retries, then drops the message.

Default: -

workers (int, optional)

Specifies the number of worker threads (at least 1) that syslog-ng OSE uses to send messages to the server. Increasing the number of worker threads can drastically improve the performance of the destination.

Default: -

persist_name (string, optional)

If you receive the following error message during AxoSyslog startup, set the persist-name() option of the duplicate drivers: Error checking the uniqueness of the persist names, please override it with persist-name option. Shutting down. See syslog-ng docs for more information.

Default: -

log-fifo-size (int, optional)

The number of messages that the output queue can store.

Default: -

timestamp (string, optional)

The timestamp that will be applied to the outgoing messages (possible values: current|received|msg default: current). Loki does not accept events, in which the timestamp is not monotonically increasing.

Default: -

template (string, optional)

Template for customizing the log message format.

Default: -
