Google_bigquery plugin failure affects logstash process

I am running Logstash 2.2.0 with the google_bigquery community plugin.
The bigquery plugin has no error handling and when it encounters a problem it dies taking logstash with it.
I start logstash back up and continue on to the next error where the process repeats itself.

Is there anything in the logstash config I can do so that abnormal termination of an output plugin doesn't cause logstash to die but instead restart the failed output plugin?

Definitely sounds like a bug to me. Would you mind filing a bug report that includes your configuration and a stacktrace (or whatever is in the Logstash log)? There appears to be a couple of issues filed already; please check if they apply to you to.

Thanks for your feedback. I will file a bug report.
