Fluent-bit microservice getting restart frequently

Hi Team,

We have created configmap as below, fluent-bit MS is getting terminate and startup frequently and i could see that it is throwing below error in the logs. After restart it indexing fine and also no buffer *.flb files in the corresponding buffer path. When i explored it says due to unformat _bulk request it might have reject, but we can control or overcome this issue. each and every time we cant modify the logs and we expect the logs should be picked and indexed without any manual intervention.

Error log:

[error] [output:es:es.0] HTTP status=400 URI=/_bulk, response:
{"error":{"root_cause":[{"type":"illegal_argument_exception","reason":"Malformed action/metadata line [65], expected START_OBJECT or END_OBJECT but found [VALUE_STRING]"}],"type":"illegal_argument_exception","reason":"Malformed action/metadata line [65], expected START_OBJECT or END_OBJECT but found [VALUE_STRING]"},"status":400}

You'd need to chat to the fluentbit developers about that, it's not something we can help with.

That suggests you're not passing Elasticsearch an object when it expects one in its mapping. That's something that is coming from your data or from fluentbit, which we can't help with.
