I am new to the ELK stack and I wonder if one need an extra logstash plugin for integrating logstash with HDFS as an Input. Unfortunately, I am not sure if the plugins are only designed for the output data of logstash and saving them in HDFS. It would be great if you can share some information with me, like how to design the Input part of Logstash in order to take a HDFS directory. Or is it much more easier, like putting the path in the input part?
Thank you very much in advance.
