Installed logstash rpm, service keeps stopping with no clear reason

Hi all,

We are trying to setup logstash to connect to elastic cloud. We downloaded the rpm and installed it. But even without any configuration pointing to our elastic cloud instance, the service just stops with the message:

[2022-03-11T12:55:06,877][FATAL][org.logstash.Logstash    ] Logstash stopped processing because of an error: (SystemExit) exit
org.jruby.exceptions.SystemExit: (SystemExit) exit
	at org.jruby.RubyKernel.exit(org/jruby/ ~[jruby.jar:?]
	at org.jruby.RubyKernel.exit(org/jruby/ ~[jruby.jar:?]
	at usr.share.logstash.lib.bootstrap.environment.<main>(/usr/share/logstash/lib/bootstrap/environment.rb:94) ~[?:?]

The only other error line is

[2022-03-11T12:55:06,777][ERROR][logstash.config.sourceloader] No configuration found in the configured sources.

What might cause this behaviour? We fee hesitant to modify the config any further while it is not even running.

Kind regards,
Jelmer van Amen

You need to provided additional information. See this thread.

Logstash won't run without any configuration, you need a configuration file with input and output, without it Logstash has nothing to do and will not start.
