First time trying to load data from mysql db to elasticsearch, need help with config file

(Yves) #1

Hi all,
I'm new to ELK and I installed everything. I now want to fetch my first table from a mySQL db. I created a sample.conf file whitch I run from my command window with:

C:\...\logstash-6.4.1\bin\logstash.bat -f sample.conf

I get the following output from cmd:

Sending Logstash logs to C:/.../logstash-6.4.1/logs which is now configured via log
[2018-09-24T14:26:37,840][WARN ][logstash.config.source.multilocal] Ignoring the 'pipelines.yml' file because modules o

[2018-09-24T14:26:38,511][INFO ][logstash.agent           ] Successfully started Logstash API endpoint {:port=>9600}

My .conf file looks like this:

input {
  jdbc {
    jdbc_driver_library => "mysql-connector-java-8.0.12-bin.jar"
    jdbc_driver_class => "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver"
    jdbc_connection_string => jdbc:mysql://http://localhost/phpmyadmin/db_structure.php?db=db"
    jdbc_user => "root"
    jdbc_password => ""
    statement => "SELECT title FROM `cgp1r_content` WHERE 1"
stdout { codec => json_lines }
   elasticsearch {
   hosts => ["localhost:9200"] 
   index => "content"

The Index is set up on Elasticsearch and the table in mySQL exits. I don't think my problem is there.

I'm using

  • Elasticsearch 6.4.0
  • Kibana 6.4.1
  • Logstash 6.4.1

I looked through various posts already but i can't find the exact problem anywhere else.

If you have any tips, suggestions or anything else I'd be really happy.
If you need more information just ask.

Thanks in advance
