Logging in Action with Fluentd, Kubernetes and More
This book looks at the open-source implementation of Fluentd and to an extent Fluent Bit. As a result, the book will cover the Treasure Data version and will help with various applications of Fluentd (for example Oracle Cloud Logging).
Given that Log management is only as effective as the quality of log information, the book includes chapters on common logging frameworks and best practise for producing log entries.

The book is supported with sample configurations, exercises available at https://github.com/mp3monster/UnifiedLoggingWithFluentd
