How to get Logstash installer to download to /tmp?

I followed the instructions for installing with YUM, published at:

This is the error:

Error Summary
Disk Requirements:
  At least 297MB more space needed on the / filesystem.

Looks like 405MB on / is not enough for Logstash

/dev/mapper/vg00-lvol1 4912 4246 405 92% /

How I do get the installer to download its files into /tmp? We have 1873MB available on /tmp

/dev/mapper/vg00-lvol3 1984 4 1873 1% /tmp

cd /tmp
curl -O

297MB will not be enough for the installation in /usr/share/logstash

Or you can use the binaries without installing.


I was at least able to download the .rpm file into /tmp

[svc_itential@atlv-orch-mdb02 tmp]$ sudo rpm -i logstash-8.13.4-x86_64.rpm
[sudo] password for svc_itential:
        installing package logstash-1:8.13.4-1.x86_64 needs 297MB on the / filesystem

You're right, we are still short 297MB.

We do need to run Logstash as a service so that it can collect logs. Is there a way to do this without full installation?

Yes, you can run as binaries

We need to run sudo systemctl start logstash.service

How do we get it to point to the binaries?

Alternatively, I will talk to my colleagues about mounting a new file system with 700 or more MB on /usr/share/logstash . I'm assuming the Logstash installer is not going to just try to create the /usr/share/logstash and exit if it already exists.
