Fluent Bit uses very low CPU and Memory consumption, it's compatible with most of x86, x86_64, arm32v7 and arm64v8 based platforms. In order to build it you need the following components in your system for the build process:
  • Compiler: GCC or clang
  • CMake
  • Flex & Bison: only if you enable the Stream Processor or Record Accessor feature (both enabled by default)
  • Libyaml development headers and libraries
In the core there are not other dependencies, For certain features that depends on third party components like output plugins with special backend libraries (e.g: kafka), those are included in the main source code repository.
