Gzipped input for logstash


Is it possible to ingest tar.gz files into logstash. I tried the gzip-lines codec, but it did not work. can someone please suggest if there is alternatives to get zipped files ingested into logstash?


The gzip_lines codec should work for gzipped text files, but what do you expect Logstash should do with a tar file? Those aren't even supported if they're not gzipped.
