Config: Storage Section

Some of Fluentd's plugins support the <storage> section to specify how to handle plugin internal states.

Storage section overview

Storage section can be in <source>, <match> or <filter> sections. It's enabled for plugins which support storage plugin features.

<source>
@type windows_eventlog
# parameters for input plugin
<storage>
# storage section parameters
</storage>
</source>

<storage> section requires @type parameter to specify the type of storage plugin. Fluentd core bundles a useful storage plugin. 3rd party plugins are also available when installed.

@type local
</storage>

And some storage plugin can handle attributes in <storage> section as below:

<storage awesome_path>
@type local
</storage>
