Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: Fluentd has too many ruby dependencies to rebuild as ruby 2.5 SCL rpms for rhel7. Consequence: We were stuck with old Fluentd and ruby on rhel7. Fix: Build Fluentd from gem files, and use the ruby 2.5 SCL. Result: We have a Fluentd image running the very latest Fluentd and using ruby 2.5.

Description Peter Portante 2017-08-07 13:39:12 UTC
The fluentd images we ship depend on the Ruby from RHEL which is apparently 2.0.0-p648.  That version appears to be EOL: https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/news/2016/02/24/support-plan-of-ruby-2-0-0-and-2-1/

We should consider what it takes to move the logging images to a version that is not EOL.  There are other products, e.g. CloudForms, which are using versions of Ruby that are not EOL (2.2 and 2.3, currently, looking to drop 2.2 when 2.4 support is announced).

Comment 1 Rich Megginson 2017-08-07 13:40:42 UTC
We are going to have to switch to using ruby 2.3 or later from SCL when we move to fluentd 0.14.  In the meantime, I trust that the RHEL/ruby team will be supporting not only us by all of the other products, projects, and customers that are using the ruby provided by RHEL.

Comment 2 Peter Portante 2017-08-07 14:01:05 UTC
Can we discuss this more?

Comment 3 Peter Portante 2017-10-06 17:00:35 UTC
Recently heard that Rich build a fluentd image use s2i using Ruby 2.3.  I think Anton also was able to do the same thing.

Comment 4 Rich Megginson 2017-11-16 21:09:02 UTC
This isn't an s2i image - it's the centos-ruby-24 base image.

Comment 7 Rich Megginson 2018-01-04 03:08:42 UTC
3.10 at the earliest.  We are going to have to port all 90+ rubygem packages to be SCL enabled.

--- Comment #2 from Vít Ondruch <vondruch> ---
Ruby 2.0 being part of RHEL7 is supported under the same conditions as RHEL7:


Comment 12 Rich Megginson 2019-03-05 14:15:43 UTC
OCP 4.0 uses Fluentd 1.x running on a ruby 2.5 SCL image.

Comment 14 Anping Li 2019-03-08 05:01:36 UTC
Move to verified as comment 12
