Recipe Tsv To Treasure Data

Looking to get data out of tsv into treasure data? You can do that with fluentd in 10 minutes!

Here is how:

$ gem install fluentd
$ gem install fluent-plugin-td
$ touch fluentd.conf

fluentd.conf should look like this (just copy and paste this into fluentd.conf):

<source>
@type tail
path /var/log/httpd-access.log #...or where you placed your Apache access log
pos_file /var/log/td-agent/httpd-access.log.pos # This is where you record file position
tag foobar.tsv #fluentd tag!
format tsv
keys key1, key2, key3 # e.g., user_id, timestamp, action
time_key key2 # Specify the column that you want to use as timestamp
</source>
‚Äč
<match **>
@type tdlog
apikey <Treasure Data API key> # You get your API key by signing up for Treasure Data
auto_create_table
buffer_type file
buffer_path /var/log/td-agent/buffer/td
</match>

After that, you can start fluentd and everything should work:

$ fluentd -c fluentd.conf

Of course, this is just a quick example. If you are thinking of running fluentd in production, consider using td-agent, the enterprise version of Fluentd packaged and maintained by Treasure Data, Inc..
