JMX input not starting


(Amrit Jangid) #1

Trying to read Kafka JMX metrics data into Logstash, Here are the config-

$ cat jmx.conf

input {
  jmx {
    path => "/home/ubuntu/dev/logstash-6.2.4/conf"
    polling_frequency => 10
    type => "jmx"
    nb_thread => 2
  }
}
output {
  stdout { codec => rubydebug }
 }

$ cat /home/ubuntu/dev/logstash-6.2.4/conf/jmx_config.json

{
  "host" : "kafka-hostname.com",
  "port" : 9000,
   "queries" : [
  {
    "object_name" : "java.lang:type=Memory",
    "object_alias" : "Memory"
  }
   ]
}

Error is -

jmx host-port are accessible and jmx plugin is installed-
$ ./bin/logstash-plugin list | grep jmx
logstash-input-jmx

Do you by any chance have any garbage characters at the start of line 2?


(Amrit Jangid) #3

No, I don't think there are any garbage characters, Pasted the configs as above.
I doubt there might be a case that it's not able to understand the input type- "jmx" in line 2?
Couldn't find anything related to plugin missing in logs, I tried to run with old version of Logstash, but no luck

Check with a hex editor. You can also delete parts of the file to narrow things down.

A missing plugin will result in another error message.

Got it running by renaming file extension type-

$ mv /home/ubuntu/dev/logstash-6.2.4/conf/jmx_config.json /home/ubuntu/dev/logstash-6.2.4/conf/jmx_config.conf

$ mv /home/ubuntu/dev/logstash-6.2.4/config/jmx.conf /home/ubuntu/dev/logstash-6.2.4/config/jmx.yml

Now Running logstash as : sudo ./bin/logstash -f /home/ubuntu/dev/logstash-6.2.4/config/jmx.yml


(Magnus Bäck) #6

What? That doesn't make any sense. jmx.yml isn't a YAML file so calling it such can only result in surprises. If you pass a directory with config files to Logstash (e.g. logstash -f /home/ubuntu/dev/logstash-6.2.4/config) Logstash will only care about .conf files.
