Deprecation Notice: rsyslog configuration on Metron August 1st


Adam Hevenor
 

There are currently competing supported ways for CF Services to configure log delivery and in an effort of consolidation and standardization we are planning the deprecation for one of those methods. To enforce these standards we are going to be taking this functionality out of Metron[1] on a release shortly after August 1st. Services can still use rsyslog to send transport their logs but rather than metron forwarding them, the syslog-release[2] will handle the transport.

We are posting this now so that services developers have time to implement the change. See the links below or feel free to reach out to the #Loggregator team on slack or github with questions.
