How to remove special character from string in logstash


(sundar) #1

I'm getting some fields in the kibana like "attributes.host_mem_file_buffer 1.3747773440e+09|g".
I want to first replace with "|g" to "" and then convert to float value.
I tried below one but it's not replacing "|g" to ""(empty)
mutate {
lowercase => [ "host" ]
gsub => [ "attributes.host_mem_mem_free", "|g", "" ]
gsub => [ "host_mem_mem_free", "|g", "" ]
gsub => [ "host.mem.mem.free", "|g", "" ]
}

Can you please help me how to remove "|g" in the string

Since | has a special meaning in regular expressions I'd try replacing \|g instead.

Thanks for your reply but not working. Below is my code. Can you please suggest me how to change entire attribute object "|g"
mutate {
lowercase => [ "host" ]
#gsub => [ "m_host_mem_mem_free", "|g", "" ]
gsub => [ "m_host_mem_mem_free", "|g", "" ]
}

My Json object is coming into the kibana

The field name isn't m_host_mem_mem_free, it's [attributes][m_host_mem_mem_free].


(sundar) #5

Is below format is correct?
gsub => [ "[attributes][m_host_mem_mem_free]", "|g", "" ]


(Magnus Bäck) #6

That looks correct, yes.


(sundar) #7

Thanks a lot it works.
gsub => [ "[_source][attributes][m_host_mem_mem_free]", "|g", "" ]
convert => { "[_source][attributes][m_host_mem_mem_free]" => "float" }

I have another question related to same . I have 100 filed names values like "|g" and field names come like below
"attributes": {
"m_host_mem_mem_cache": "2.0229201920e+09|g",
"m_host_mem_mem_free": "3.8571212800e+09|g",
"m_host_mem_free_mem_swap": "1.9327344640e+10|g",
"m_host_mem_file_buffer": "8.2237849600e+08|g",
"m_host_mem_mem_total": "8.0994344960e+09|g",
"m_host_mem_mem_swap": "1.9327344640e+10|g"
},
How can I use iterator and dynamic replacement "|g" with empty and convert the float. Please give me solution.

I'm pretty sure you have to use a ruby filter.
