Grok patterns for syslog configuration in logstash

(Elbesraoui Imane) #1

Hi,I recentely started working with the ELK stack but I have a problem for
my syslog logstash configuration. Can you give me hand pleaase ? I don't know what's the problem I'm having in my config file, but when i do the /bin/logstash -f it gives me this :
Attempting to install template {:manage_template=>{"template"=>"logstash-", "version"=>50001, "settings"=>{"index.refresh_interval"=>"5s"}, "mappings"=>{"default"=>{"_all"=>{"enabled"=>true, "norms"=>false}, "dynamic_templates"=>[{"message_field"=>{"path_match"=>"message", "match_mapping_type"=>"string", "mapping"=>{"type"=>"text", "norms"=>false}}}, {"string_fields"=>{"match"=>"", "match_mapping_type"=>"string", "mapping"=>{"type"=>"text", "norms"=>false, "fields"=>{"keyword"=>{"type"=>"keyword"}}}}}], "properties"=>{"@timestamp"=>{"type"=>"date", "include_in_all"=>false}, "@version"=>{"type"=>"keyword", "include_in_all"=>false}, "geoip"=>{"dynamic"=>true, "properties"=>{"ip"=>{"type"=>"ip"}, "location"=>{"type"=>"geo_point"}, "latitude"=>{"type"=>"half_float"}, "longitude"=>{"type"=>"half_float"}}}}}}}}

could you please post your config ?
What u post here

 Attempting to install template 

Is just an info message that tell you the default template is installed. I don't this is something wrong with that.

Did you get any document into the elasticsearch node ?

Hi Kim,
this is my config :

 input {
    file {
    path => "/data/log/testlogstash/messages"
    type => "syslog"
    start_position => "beginning"


    filter {
    if [type] == "syslog" {
    grok {
    patterns_dir => "/etc/logstash/conf.d/patterns/"
    match => ["message",  "(%{SYSLOGTIMESTAMP:syslog_timestamp} %{SYSLOGHOST:syslog_hostname} %{GREEDYDATA:syslog_process}\[%{NUMBER:syslog_uid}\]:(?=%{GREEDYDATA:syslog_message})|(%{SYSLOGTIMESTAMP:syslog_timestamp} %{SYSLOGHOST:syslog_hostname} %{DATA:syslog_program} \|%{NUMBER:syslog_epoch:int}\|%{IP:syslog_ip}\|%{GREEDYDATA:syslog_path}\|%{GREEDYDATA:syslog_title}\|%{GREEDYDATA:syslog_referrer}\|%{NUMBER:syslog_uid}\|%{GREEDYDATA:syslog_sid}\|%{NUMBER:syslog_timer:int}\|%{GREEDYDATA:syslog_cache}\|%{GREEDYDATA:syslog_user_agent}\|%{NUMBER:syslog_peak_memory:int}))"]

    if "_grokparsefailure" in [tags] {
                            drop { }



    output {
     elasticsearch { hosts => ["localhost:9200"]
     index => "syslogindex-%{+YYYY.MM.dd}"
    sniffing => false
     manage_template => false
     stdout { codec => rubydebug }

There is nothing wrong with your configuration. The message is an informational message that you'll get every time Logstash starts up if you have an elasticsearch output. Move on.
