How do you install the syslog input plugin?


#1

Hi,

I got Elastic configured last night and have Logstash listening on port 5000:

$ netstat -aptn |grep LIST |grep 5000
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:5000 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 10743/java

I have rsyslog on a different forwarding its logs and using tcpdump, I can see those logs successfully coming in:

15:01:24.857193 IP (tos 0x0, ttl 64, id 8529, offset 0, flags [DF], proto TCP (6), length 288)

But I think I need I need the syslog input plugin but I'm not sure how to do that. I've tried 'elasticsearch-plugin install logstash-input-syslog', 'elasticsearch-plugin install input-syslog', and 'elasticsearch-plugin install syslog' but I'm obviously not getting the plugin name right. If anyone could help point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Use the logstash-plugin command to install Logstash plugins, not elasticsearch-plugin. See https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/logstash/current/working-with-plugins.html.
