Is there something equivalent to logstash-forwarder that can ship logfiles to fluentd?
I am trying to send log files from an application to a remote fluentd but have not seen whether this is possible via an agent somehow. I understand that you can make fluentd read logfiles when it runs on the same machine where the logfiles are produced (or copied) but I would love it whether something equivalent to logstash-forwarder exists.
Some more information: The system is a Debian 7 and the application logs in a file line-by-line. No syslog capability and that is why I am seeking for agents like logstash-forwarder instead that sort of
tail -f logfile and send each new line at the remote fluentd.
