Duplicate entries in Logstash?


(Kenneth Mroz) #1

I am not to sure where the issue is if it is with Logstash or Log-courier. It seems that logstash keeps rereading the same log line and parses it multiple times. To check this i named the common field type %{WORD:field1},%{WORD:field2},%{WORD:field3},. When i tail the log for logstash each one come out thress different times for that same log.
"@version" => "1",
"@timestamp" => "2015-11-02T21:25:34.495Z",
"day" => "Mon",
"timestamp" => "Nov 02 21:25:30",
"year" => "2015",
"global1" => "REX", (This repeats itself three time, same time stamp and log entry)
"resource" => "Service",
"status" => "notice",
"results" => " enable changed 'false' to 'true'"

What version?
What do your configs look like?
