5 bug fixes

  • TCP-based sources like socket, logstash, and fluent would sometimes panic when back-pressure logic calculated a lower limit on the number of incoming connections than 2, which is intended to be the minimum limit. Thanks to zamazan4ik for contributing this change!
  • The http_server source again has the correct default accept method of POST rather than GET.
  • The elasticsearch sink no longer panics when bulk.index is unspecified and the default mode of bulk is used. Instead it defaults again to vector-%Y.%m.%d. Thanks to zamazan4ik for contributing this change!
  • The syslog source again correctly inserts the source IP of the connection that events come in on as source_ip rather than source_id. Thanks to zamazan4ik for contributing this change!
  • The log_schema.timestamp_key can again be set to "" to suppress adding of a timestamp to events rather than panicking when starting.
