Unix domain socket as output plugin

(Mohan Parthasarathy) #1


Is there any reason why unix domain socket is restricted as input plugin ? I would want to do some more processing and avoiding a disk write. TCP sockets require ports where as unix domain socket just require fils system paths that make it attractive. Any reason ?

Maybe it's just that someone hasn't written one?

I actually tried to write a plugin that wrote to a unix socket, but jruby is spitting out lovely errors when trying to connect.
