Protobuf EncoderΒΆ

Plugin Name: ProtobufEncoder

The ProtobufEncoder is used to serialize Heka message objects back into Heka’s standard protocol buffers format. This is the format that Heka uses to communicate with other Heka instances, so one will always be included in your Heka configuration using the default “ProtobufEncoder” name whether specified or not.

The hekad protocol buffers message schema is defined in the message.proto file in the message package.
