Kafka plugin makes logstash go into 100% CPU infinite loop


(Omar Al Zabir) #1

I am using Kafka plugin in logstash to read items and push to ES. After processing 3M messages, I can see the logstash process remains at 100% CPU continuously, although it is doing nothing.

Here's my config:

input {
        beats {
                port => 5048
                        type => 'hit'
        }
        kafka {
                zk_connect => "10.35.132.117:2181,10.187.147.57:2181,10.187.147.58:2181"
                        topic_id => "rsyslog_logstash"
                        reset_beginning => false
                        type => "kafka"
        }
}

filter {
                drop {}
        }

        if [type] == "kafka" {
                date {
                        match => [ "timestamp", "ISO8601" ]
                        locale => "en"
                }
        }

        metrics {
                meter => "events"
                        add_tag => "metric"
        }
}
output {
        if "metric" in [tags] {
                stdout {
                        codec => line {
                                format => "rate: %{[events][rate_1m]}"
                        }
                }
        }

        if [fingerprint] {
                elasticsearch {
                        hosts =>  ["10.35.76.37","10.35.132.143","10.35.132.142"]
                                index => "hits-%{+YYYY.MM.dd}"
                                template => "./conf/hits.json"
                                template_name => "hits"
                                document_type => "hit"
                                template_overwrite => true
                                manage_template => true
                                flush_size => "1000"
                }
        } else {
        }
}

kill did not kill the process. Had to do kill -3.
