Elapsed plugin


(Andre Hole) #1

Hello,

I'm trying to use logstash 1.5.1 to parse an application log file with the following pattern:

2015-04-30 17:11:04.640 [INFO] 123 message started
2015-04-30 17:11:14.320 [DEBUG] 123 message in the middle
2015-04-30 17:11:14.850 [INFO] 124 message started
2015-04-30 17:11:15.240 [INFO] 123 message ended
2015-04-30 17:11:18.340 [DEBUG] 124 message in the middle
2015-04-30 17:11:19.620 [INFO] 124 message ended
2015-04-30 17:11:24.640 [INFO] 230 message started
2015-04-30 17:11:29.620 [INFO] 230 message ended
2015-04-30 17:11:39.220 [INFO] 450 message started
2015-04-30 17:11:51.420 [INFO] 455 message started
2015-04-30 17:11:53.420 [DEBUG] 455 message in the middle
2015-04-30 17:11:53.456 [DEBUG] 450 message in the middle
2015-04-30 17:11:54.431 [INFO] 455 message ended
2015-04-30 17:11:56.431 [INFO] 450 message ended

At the end I need to generate an output file with time difference between "message started" and "message ended" for each thread id.

I'm not a logstash expert and after some hard work I realize that I need your support. I created the following configuration file but it doesn't work:

input {
file {
path => "/home/vagrant/workdir/temp.log"
start_position => beginning
}
}

filter {
grok {
match => [ "message" , "''%{TIMESTAMP_ISO8601:logdate} %{LOGLEVEL:loglevel} [%{DATA:thread}] message started" ]
add_tag => [ "transactionstarted" ]
}
grok {
match => [ "message" , "''%{TIMESTAMP_ISO8601:logdate} %{LOGLEVEL:loglevel} [%{DATA:thread}] message ended" ]
add_tag => [ "transactionended" ]
}

elapsed
{
start_tag => "transactionstarted"
end_tag => "transactionended"
unique_id_field => "thread"
}

}

output {
file {
path => "/home/vagrant/workdir/output.log"
}
}

Wrong output generated:

Can I ask for your expertise to get the expected output?

Thanks a lot

Elapsed is what you want, though your grok pattern doesn't seem right as it's the loglevel field that is actually in square brackets, not thread.

Try using http://grokdebug.herokuapp.com/ to build a valid pattern first, then go from there.

Thanks!

Filter is now working:

filter {
grok {
match => [ "message" , "%{TIMESTAMP_ISO8601:time_request}%{SPACE}[%{GREEDYDATA:level}]%{SPACE}%{WORD:threadid}%{SPACE}message started" ]
add_tag => [ "transactionstarted" ]
}
grok {
match => [ "message" , "%{TIMESTAMP_ISO8601:time_request}%{SPACE}[%{GREEDYDATA:level}]%{SPACE}%{WORD:threadid}%{SPACE}message ended" ]
add_tag => [ "transactionended" ]
}

elapsed
{
start_tag => "transactionstarted"
end_tag => "transactionended"
unique_id_field => "threadid"
}

}

However, I don't understand elapsed output. Elapsed time and elapsed.timestamp_start are not correct.

Any idea?
