Build cloud native observability pipelines with minimal footprints and high-performance throughput—all with Fluent Bit, Kubernetes, and your favorite visualization and analytics tools.

Fluent Bit is a super-fast and super lightweight observability tool—making it perfect for telemetry on Kubernetes-based systems. Fluent Bit with Kubernetes is an all-practical guide to monitoring both cloud-native and traditional environments with Fluent Bit. It takes you from the basics of collecting app logs, all the way to filtering, routing, enriching and transforming logs, metrics, and traces.

Inside Fluent Bit with Kubernetes you’ll learn how to:

  • Deploy Fluent Bit for log, metric, and trace collection
  • Configure pipelines to filter, route, and transform data
  • Integrate Fluent Bit with containers and Kubernetes
  • Configure Fluent Bit to work with OpenTelemetry, Prometheus, and other open source tech
  • Monitor applications at scale with minimal footprint
  • Address challenges in Kubernetes-based ecosystems using Fluent Bit
  • Utilize Fluent Bit for real-time event analytics
  • Develop custom filters, inputs, and outputs for unique or reusable use cases

Fluent Bit with Kubernetes draws on both the input and support of key committers and founders of Fluent Bit, and author Phil Wilkin’s years of experience in DevOps. Inside, you’ll see how you can integrate Fluent Bit with Prometheus, OpenTelemetry, FluentD deployments, and more. Learn how Fluent Bit can not only meet all the demands of cloud-native use cases, but also more traditional deployments as well.
