Loggregator Architecture Change: Independently Scalable Syslog

Adam Hevenor

Hi All -

The loggregator team is planning a track of work that results in some architectural changes to how syslog drains are implemented. I wanted to share our plans and solicit any feedback about this new approach.

Brief: Developers and operators can use syslog drains to bind the logs of a specific app to a third party tool, but doing so puts additional strain on logs delivered through the firehose. These changes eliminate this burden and pave the way for more developer features related to syslog while keeping the same user experience.

Please let me know your comments, feedback or ideas about the proposal.
