Process input plugin allows you to check how healthy a process is. It does the check by periodically issuing messages with a few metrics related to the process.

Configuration Parameters

The plugin supports the following configuration parameters:

Getting Started

In order to start performing the checks, you can run the plugin from the command line or through the configuration file:

The following example will check the health of crond process.

$ fluent-bit -i proc -p proc_name=crond -o stdout

Configuration File

In your main configuration file append the following Input & Output sections:

    Name          proc
    Proc_Name     crond
    Interval_Sec  1
    Interval_NSec 0
    Fd            true
    Mem           true

    Name   stdout
    Match  *


Once Fluent Bit is running, you will see the health of process:

$ fluent-bit -i proc -p proc_name=fluent-bit -o stdout
