thanks for the update.
I gave it a try to log-observe and the other network-* stuff but still I find it’s not a straightforward solution for the end-user, we allow to process many sources of data and paths per user’s need.
If someone want’s to use Fluent Bit to receive, process and ship logs, having to connect an interface manually adds an extra unnecessary step. Fluent Bit is a tool that can run as a service and also as a standalone utility, our goal as maintainers to provide a Snap for it is to make easier it deployment and usage, otherwise using .deb package will continue being the preferred way.
Having Fluent Bit as a classic snap will help users to rapidly setup a data pipeline without any operational concerns. A bit of background about the tool:
- Fluent Bit is a CNCF sub-project under the umbrella of Fluentd
- License: Apache v2.0
- 80% of our users are in the containers space: we see > 600k pulls “per day”
- we see a trend for it use in non-containerized environments, for hence we need a easy to deploy “Snap”
thanks again for your help,
