I installed logstash ZIP folder using Also prepared a logstash.conf config file, followed the steps as explained on this: But Im getting the follwing error:

C:\Users\shraddhasrivastav\Downloads\logstash-6.3.1\bin>logstash -f logstash-simple.conf
Unrecognized VM option 'UseParNewGC'
Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

Please help to solve.


The default jvm.options file assumes that you are running a HotSpot JVM. If you are running something else you may need to adjust it. You could start by just commenting that out. What JVM are you using? (What does 'java -version' produce?)
