gzip Preprocessor#

The gzip preprocessor can uncompress entries which have been compressed with the GNU ‘gzip’ algorithm.

The GZIP preprocessor Type is gzip.

Supported Options#

  • Passthrough-Non-Gzip (boolean, optional): if set to true, the preprocessor will pass through any entries whose contents cannot be uncompressed with gzip. By default, the preprocessor will drop any entries which are not gzip-compressed.

Common Use Cases#

Many cloud data bus providers will package data in a compressed form. This preprocessor can decompress the data stream in the ingester rather than routing through a cloud lambda function (which can incur additional costs).

Example: Decompressing compressed entries#

Example config:

[Preprocessor "gz"]
