Batches and Multipart Messages
When writing multipart (batched) messages using the
lines codec the last message ends with double delimiters. E.g. the messages "foo", "bar" and "baz" would be written as:
Whereas a multipart message [ "foo", "bar", "baz" ] would be written as:
This enables consumers of this output feed to reconstruct the original batches. However, if you wish to avoid this behaviour then add a
split processor before messages reach this output.
The network type to connect as.
The address (or path) to connect to.
# Examplesaddress: /tmp/benthos.sockaddress: localhost:9000
The way in which the bytes of messages should be written out into the output data stream. It's possible to write lines using a custom delimiter with the
delim:x codec, where x is the character sequence custom delimiter.
|Only applicable to file based outputs. Writes each message to a file in full, if the file already exists the old content is deleted.|
|Append each message to the output stream without any delimiter or special encoding.|
|Append each message to the output stream followed by a line break.|
|Append each message to the output stream followed by a custom delimiter.|
