HTTP Log plugin plugin lifecycle


#1

Hello, I am trying to use the HTTP Log plugin. But I have some question

  • Is it blocking or nonblocking? *
  • What will happen if my logging server is so slow?
  • What will happen if my logging server is down?
  • Will it add extra latency? *

*This question is for every kong plugin

  • Is it blocking or nonblocking? *- nonblocking
  • What will happen if my logging server is so slow? - Then you better set a really high timeout in the configs :smiley:
  • What will happen if my logging server is down? - the newly redone http logger plugin has some retry and buffer queue size options, but ultimately if its officially down then tx’s will be dropped as it is the only safe choice.
  • Will it add extra latency? * - no
