This article explains how to install td-agent, the stable Fluentd distribution package maintained by Treasure Data, Inc, on MacOS X.
Fluentd is written in Ruby for flexibility, with performance sensitive parts written in C. However, casual users may have difficulty installing and operating a Ruby daemon.
That's why Treasure Data, Inc is providing the stable distribution of Fluentd, called
td-agent. The differences between Fluentd and td-agent can be found here.
For MacOS X, we're using the OS native .dmg Installer to distribute td-agent.
Please download the
.dmgfile from here, and install the software.
