Integrating Fluentbit with Manticore

Difficulty: Beginner
Estimated Time: 5 minutes

Manticoresearch - integration with Fluentbit

This tutorial will explain about using Manticore together with Fluentbit

Note that if you install Manticore manually you'll need to install the 'manticore-extra' package to enable the functionality described in this course.

Integrating Fluentbit with Manticore

Step 1 of 1


Manticore allows you to index data collected with the Fluentbit agent.

To do this, you must have Fluentbit installed on your local machine.

Indexing data with Fluentbit

Here is a simple example of how you can use FluentBit togenther with Manticore. The example demonstrates the indexing of the dpkg.log, a standard log file of the Debian package manager:

cat /var/log/dpkg.log

And here is our Fluentbit configuration file:

cat fluentbit.conf

We start FluentBit in the daemon mode and with the INPUT inotify_watcher option disabled to avoid possible problems with the Docker environment which exist in some agent's versions and can lead to errors.

fluent-bit -c fluentbit.conf

Now let's wait a few seconds until Fluentbit finishes its work and make a data check:

mysql -P9306 -h0


DESCRIBE testlog;



As we see, the data collected by FluentBit is succesfully indexed and stored in the Manticore testlog table.
