Monitoring Docker, OpenShift and Kubernetes - Version 5.14.285 - whitelisting the messages

March 23, 2020

We have released a patch release for the Collectord, that includes a few new features, performance and memory improvements.

Whitelisting the messages

With the replace annotations you could configure which log messages you want to drop and not forward to Splunk. If you want to configure the whitelist pattern, and tell Collectord which messages should be forwarded to Splunk you can configure a whitelist pattern now. For example for NGINX Pod you can specify that only log messages with POST and DELETE words should be forwarded to Splunk

apiVersion: v1
kind: Pod
  name: nginx-pod
    collectord.io/logs-whitelist: '((DELETE)|(POST))$'
  - name: nginx
    image: nginx
