Beats with json support

(Jeferson Martins) #1


there's some plugin for this? I have all logs in JSON...

I moved your question to the beats group.

(Tudor Golubenco) #3

Not at the moment, but adding JSON support to Filebeat is something we're planning.

(Jeferson Martins) #4

OK, thanks

Until filebeat gets json parsing support, you can parse the json in logstash by either using the json codec or the json filter in logstash.

but the filebeat has output plugin to redis?

(Steffen Siering) #7

yes filebeat has support for output to redis (current implementation is deprecated and will be likely redone for 5..0 release), but forwarding to logstash or have redis->logstash you get json parsing of log-lines.

ok, i'll try it.

Today I have some problems with Logstash 1.4.2 and I think the filebeat has created for resolve some Logstash problems.

Hi, recent versions of syslog-ng can parse JSON messages, and can send them directly to Elasticsearch and Redis.
