How to use Logstash plugin ID effectively?


(Maxwell Flanders) #1

I am using logstash-kafka input plugin, and I have configured the ID setting, as referenced here: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/logstash/current/plugins-inputs-kafka.html#plugins-inputs-kafka-id

I thought this would allow me greater debugging ability, but I have not seen that id show up in any manner when running the logstash monitoring API's.

Specifically, I have been looking at the output produced by this command:
curl -s localhost:9600/_node/stats/pipeline?pretty
because that's where I presumed it would show up, but I have not seen the string I set for the ID anywhere.

Am I looking in the wrong place?? If I set a plugins id, where can I utilize that tool to gain insight on my logstash processes??

I am using Logstash 5.1.2.

Thanks!!
