How to transfer log to influxDB via elasticsearch


(Abhisek Mohanty) #1

Hi All,

I need to transfer log to influxdb from elasticsearch, i have gone through the following document :
https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/logstash/5.4/plugins-outputs-influxdb.html
and came to the conclusion that i can do it using influxdb plugin.

but i have some doubts :slight_smile:

  1. Is logstash required for the plugin to be working.
  2. Is it possible to use elasticsearch index to transfer the log to influxdb using influx plugin.
  3. If it is possible then how to write a configuration file for the data load.

I moved your question to #logstash.

Is logstash required for the plugin to be working.

Yes.

Is it possible to use elasticsearch index to transfer the log to influxdb using influx plugin.

Probably with an elasticsearch-input-plugin.

If it is possible then how to write a configuration file for the data load.

My guess: use the elasticsearch input to read data from elasticsearch and the influxdb output to write data to InfluxDB.

@dadoonet thanks for your reply
But is it possible to load log without using logstash.

Are you talking about telegraf plugin.

Is it possible to use telegraf to transfer log using elasticsearch input plugin.

What, exactly, do you mean by this?

Are you talking about telegraf plugin.

No, he's talking about the Logtash input plugin called elasticsearch.
