The filter_stdout filter plugin prints events to stdout (or logs if launched with daemon mode). This filter plugin is useful for debugging purposes.

Example Configurations

filter_stdout is included in Fluentd's core. No installation required.

A sample output is as follows:

where the first part shows the output time, the second part shows the tag, and the third part shows the record.
