Re: [Proposal] Deprecation of the firehose endpoint
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Thank your for the notification.
We use the firehose in Stratos to stream logs for applications and the firehose itself for users/admins to view in the UI.
We also use the CF Firehose exporter (https://github.com/bosh-prometheus/firehose_exporter) as does https://github.com/bosh-prometheus/prometheus-boshrelease) to retrieve metrics from the firehose and store those in Prometheus for display within Stratos. Do you know what the plan is for these to be updated?
It is a large amount of work for us to make the changes for the removal of the firehose and I think 3 months is too aggressive a time frame for us to be able to complete those - this is not something we’ve factored into our planning, so I think we’d need a 12 month window on the firehose removal to be safe.
We have users using Stratos on a variety of Cloud Foundry distributions, which we won’t be able to guarantee will be updated in your proposed three month window, so we will most likely have to make updates to allow Stratos to work with systems that use the current firehose and those that use the newer APIs.
I’m happy to discuss this further with you directly if that would help.
