I am looking at ingestion pipeline using logstash into elasticsearch.
Source data comes from sql database (MySQL)
I have used the jdbc input plugin for logstash which is fantastic.
I have a question:
I want to schedule logstash to index the data on a recurring basis. (aka Update existing index) I know that the jdbc plugin has this capability already.
Is this a reindex or new index of the data?
My scheduler prob only has to run once a month.
I have used aliases before and found them useful to atomically switch from one index to the next. I understand logstash does not support that. I would have to use the curator.
Do i simply just go with scheduler or look at using an alias!?
