Count of Log messages on logstash

Hi Guys i am new to elastic search , need an insight on how can we get the count of Log messages received in Logstash from rsyslog server. Any idea , this is to check the differnce in logs forwarded from rsyslog and recieved at Logstash end .

I don't know how you would count that at the logstash end, but if the data is making it to Elasticsearch, this should be doable. Is it?

Is this helpful :

Hi Dublin,

Yes it is definitely possible. @steffens had helped me on an issue a couple of years back

The relevant part is as follows:
simple logstash config for testing:

input {
  beat { ... }

output {
  stdout { codec => dots }

This config prints one dot per event. Using pv we can measure throughput:

./bin/logstash test.cfg | pv -War > /dev/null

This will give you the event rate in terms of bytes/sec. To get an idea about the actual event rate, you will have to use the metric filter. Hope this helps! :slight_smile:
