luasandbox  1.3.2
Generic Lua sandbox for dynamic data analysis
Lua Sandbox Library

Overview

Sandboxes provide a dynamic and isolated execution environment for data parsing, transformation, and analysis. They allow access to data without jeopardizing the integrity or performance of the processing infrastructure. This broadens the audience that the data can be exposed to and facilitates new uses of the data (i.e. debugging, monitoring, dynamic provisioning, SLA analysis, intrusion detection, ad-hoc reporting, etc.)

The Lua sandbox is a library allowing customized control over the Lua execution environment including functionality like global data preservation/restoration on shutdown/startup, output collection in textual or binary formats and an array of parsers for various data types (Nginx, Apache, Syslog, MySQL and many RFC grammars)

These libraries and utilities have been mostly extracted from Hindsight. The goal was to decouple the Heka/Hindsight functionality from any particular infrastructure and make it embeddable into any tool or language.
