What issues did you have with kinesis firehose? I just deployed a couple of those and would like to know what to watch out for.

Lots of downtime. Probably 3-4 serious incidents within a 6 month period. We also had a high number of transient errors that AWS Support considered 'expected'.

One issue we've hit is that logrotate with copytruncate enabled breaks firehose, but afaik it's mostly been good.

Using copytruncate breaks a lot of software, not just Firehose. I generally discourage its use in favor of addressing whatever root cause is making you want to use it.

In my experience, any 'improve logging' ticket goes straight to the back of the dev's backlog. Followed the next week by complaints about the logging system not being all that good... :)
