  • The cassandra input plugin has been deprecated in favor of the jolokia input plugin which is much more configurable and more performant. There is an example configuration to help you get started.
  • For plugins supporting TLS, you can now specify the certificate and keys using tls_ca, tls_cert, and tls_key. These options behave the same as the now-deprecated ssl forms.
