This blob post goes through the different methods of connecting an HPC cluster in a box (within docker container) so that the network performance is worth the effort and all containers are addressable. It's going to talk about VXLAN, MACLAN and some pipework to glue them together.

Logstash zeromq plugin bugfix

The zeromq filter within logstash 1.4 is not working out as expected for me. I opened an issue on github to cope with that. For now I work around this issue by starting logstash 1.3 as a separate instance and let this version deal with zeromq.

Come again?!

For those of you asking WTF?... :) ZeroMQ is a message library that provides multiple patterns like PUB/SUB, PUSH/PULL and others. I got a use-case in which I want specific log events to be handled outside of logstash. And more outside then firing up the ruby filter. I want to process the event within a external daemon to check some things, update the JSON with additional information (lookup names, routes or alike) and after I am done I push it back into the logstash pipeline.
