First pipeline issue in logstash config


#1

After creating basic lostash.conf file and running the command to verify it ..I get the error as follows -

logstash.conf
input {
beats {
port => "5044"
}
}

The filter part of this file is commented out to indicate that it is

optional.

filter {

}

output {
stdout { codec => rubydebug }
}

command -
C:\elastic\logstash-5.2.0\bin>logstash -f logstash.conf --config.test_and_exit

Could not find log4j2 configuration at path /elastic/logstash-5.2.0/config/log4j

(Paris Mermigkas) #2

The error is pretty self-explanatory:

Logstash cannot find the configuration file because you are not providing a full path to it, just the name. So it searches in the current dir (../logstash/bin) which I assume is not where you put it. Just provide the full path in the argument and you should be ok.
