Best Practice Configuration of Twitter Plugin for multiple twitter sources


(Michael O'Brien) #1

Hi all,

I've been looking for a reason to try ELK for a while now and finally have a small project I think would suit.
I need to collect twitter data over a 2 week period but I'm not sure whats the best way to configure Logstash so it will work but won't exceed the twitter api resource limits.

I need to monitor a few accounts (3 or 4) as well as collect tweets that mention specific tags (3 or 4). I don't expect the dataset to be massive or the rate of production to be intensive but I'm not sure do I use 1 logstash to collect everything or separate ones for each account and tag I need.

Also does the twitter plugin play well with the twitter api resource constraints
