    Description

      Goals

      This will be the initial GA release of an alternate collector to fluentd. The first phase will provide a supported
      alternative for some of the features that are available to customers using fluentd. We do not expect to have full
      feature parity with the this release:

      • Logging with a GA Release of Vector as an optional alternate collector
      • Smooth upgradable path from fluentd-based logging to Vector
      • Clear documentation for migrating from existing fluentd-specific API features.
      • Compatible API extended to handle the vector collector
      • Support arch: x86, arm

      Non-Goals

      • Swapping out fluentd for vector on upgrade; this is an opt-in choice due to feature differences

      Acceptance Criteria

      • Complies with viaq data model
      • Supports outputs: elasticsearch, kafka, loki, cloudwatch
      • Comparable auth capabilities to fluentd for supported outputs
      • Verify switching between collector types without regression
      • Verify compatible with a FIPS enabled cluster
      • Verify compatible with global proxy enabled cluster

      Risk and Assumptions

      TODO

      Documentation Considerations

      • Feature gaps
      • missing syslog support
      • missing fluentforward support
      • Metrics dashboard
