Cloud Native Logging with Fluentd and Fluent Bit (LFS242)

Course code: LFS242

This course introduces the Fluentd and Fluent Bit log forwarding and aggregation tool for use in cloud native logging. Both tools provide fast and efficient log transformation and enrichment, as well as aggregation and forwarding. These capabilities enable both Fluentd and Fluent Bit to realize the concept of a “unified logging layer”, that helps users consume log data collected from all parts of a large scale, distributed system.

In this course, you will explore the full range of Fluentd and Fluent Bit operations and features, from installing the tools as native processes to running Fluentd and Fluent Bit in container. The course also examines using Fluentd and Fluent Bit as simple log forwarders, as well as using the tools as sophisticated log aggregators and processors. Upon completion, you will have the skills necessary to deploy the Fluent tools in a wide range of production settings.
