[cf-dev] feedback request: deprecate nats_stream_forwarder job from cf-release

Amit Gupta
Hey folks,

There's an old job in cf-release called nats_stream_forwarder that we want to potentially deprecate.  It was intended in the past to help with debugging, but isn't currently seeing much active use.  Would there be any objections to removing this from cf-release completely?


Best,
Amit

We are currently using this component to stream all NATS activity to syslog where it is then forwarded to our common logging infrastructure.  We're required to log all system activity so if this were to go away we'd just need some assurance that any activity that shows up in the NATS stream is duplicated somewhere else (CC logs, etc.).

Aaron, I'm not completely familiar with what "all NATS activity" covers, but I do know what is logged where. If you list what you care about, I can tell you where else it's available. I'd love to make sure everything you need gets into the firehose.

It was a theoretical concern, there isn't a specific list of activities that I have.  Right now we're depending on the functionality that logs the entire NATS stream in case there is something in it that isn't logged somewhere else to ensure I'm compliant with an "everything must be logged" policy.  If you were just looking for feedback on whether the component is used, then yes, we are using it.  :-)
