fluent-plugin-sentry Build Status


fluent-plugin-sentry is a fluentd output plugin that sends aggregated errors/exception events to Sentry. Sentry is a event logging and aggregation platform.

Sentry alone does not buffer incoming requests, so if your Sentry instance is under load, Sentry can respond with a 503 Service Unavailable.

fluent-plugin-sentry extends fluent buffered output and enables a fluend user to buffer and flush messages to Sentry with reliable delivery.
