Well, today the heka was deprecated. In my example, we have a project that
has used the heka to pre-process the logs received from nginx/haproxy and
other internal software.

Basically, Many Lua scripts removing fields, resolving geoip address, some
math process, and other things.

p.s: I know that we can use the syslog-ng filters, but our platform is more
complex than I can explain. unfortunately, we should use the heka for a
while. A pity that it no longer supports the Lua.
