Journalbeat and Java exceptions


(Igor Cicimov) #1

Hi all,

I'm trying to catch java exceptions using multiline processor as follows:

journalbeat.inputs:
- paths: []
  seek: cursor
  include_matches:
    - "syslog.identifier=tomcat"
  multiline:
    pattern: '^\d+\serror|^.+Exception: .+|^\s+at .+|^\s+... \d+ more|^\s*Caused by:.+|^[[:space:]]+|^\s*[{|}]|^(\s+)?<\/?.+>$'
    negate: false
    match: after

but the even sent has only a single line like:

at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor.runWorker(ThreadPoolExecutor.java:1149)

Anyone has done this with journalbeat?

Ok, I don't think multiline is working properly in Journalbeat. I tested with https://play.golang.org/p/uAd5XHxscu as per https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/6.0/_test_your_regexp_pattern_for_multiline.html. This is the pattern I've tested with:

var pattern = `^\d+\serror|^.+Exception|^[[:space:]]+(at|...)|^\s+... \d+ more|^([[:space:]]+)?Caused by:.+|^\s*[{|}]|^(\s+)?<\/?.+>$`
var negate = false

and this is the exception:

var content = `2019-03-14 05:48:47,365 +0000 [-nio-8080-exec-6] ERROR MINOR  c.e.e.c.a.e.RestApiExceptionHandler - Exception

`

and the test is successful. Journalbeat however sends only this single line:

         at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:748)

Any ideas?
