We have upgraded Fluent Bit form v2.0.1 to v2.1.3 and this is gradually rolling out to all our managed clusters.
Fluent Bit is the component responsible for collecting all logs, filtering, and shippiing this to several outputs with Grafana Loki as our default. Up until now we have been using the external
grafana-loki output plugin. However development on this plugin is slowly halting and isn’t properly supported anymore with fluent-bit v2.1. We have updated our logging pipelines to move to the built-in
loki output, and will be removing the external
grafana-loki plugin from ourr fluent-bit builds soon.
This change won’t have a noticable impact for our customers.
