Log4J socket appender to Beats


(Mike Conner) #1

Any plans to support Log4J in Beats as a SocketAppender or some other mechanism besides file? I'd love not to parse log output to ensure data is formatted consistently.

Would also like it to support other logging libraries such as NLog, Log4Net, or Log4Cpp.

No plans about Log4j socket appender yet, but logstash provides log4j support: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/logstash/current/plugins-inputs-log4j.html
