Bulk UDP deprecated?


(Steve Freegard-2) #1

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me why the Bulk UDP service is being deprecated?

I'm using it currently as it's a handy way to send non-critical data to
ES without the associated overheads of doing it via the standard API and
without affecting the performance of the application sending the data
(as it's essentially fire-and-forget).

Kind regards,
Steve.

See https://github.com/elastic/elasticsearch/pull/7595

"This feature is rarely used. Removing it will help reduce the moving parts
of Elasticsearch and focus on the core."

If there is demand, I can jump in and move the bulk UDP code to a
community-supported plugin for ES 2.0

For syslog, I have implemented a similar plugin:

Yes we use it too. It is very handy for non critical data without performance impact.
It would be great as plugin.
