The stdio adapter enables Istio to output logs and metrics to
the local machine. Logs and metrics can be directed to Mixer’s
standard output stream, standard error stream, or to any locally
reachable file. When outputting to files, you can enable file rotation
such that the adapter will automatically manage a set of file backups
as data is generated.
The minimum level to output, anything less than this level is ignored. Defaults to INFO (everything).
The file system path when outputting to a file or rotating file.
When using rotated log files, this path is used as a foundational path. This is where log
output is normally saved. When a rotation needs to take place because the file got too big
or too old, then the file is renamed by appending a timestamp to the name. Such renamed
files are called backups. Once a backup has been created, output resumes to this path.
The maximum size in megabytes of a log file before it gets
rotated. It defaults to 100 megabytes.
The maximum number of days to retain old rotated log files based on the
timestamp encoded in their filename. Note that a day is defined as 24
hours and may not exactly correspond to calendar days due to daylight
savings, leap seconds, etc. The default is to remove log files
older than 30 days. 0 indicates no limit.
The maximum number of old rotated log files to retain. The default
is to retain at most 1000 logs. 0 indicates no limit.
