Logstash 2.2.2 not working on windows 7

I've been trying to upgrade to the latest versions of ELK on a windows box to no avail.
Testing my configurations one piece at a time starting with logstash.
Current version of logstash that works with my configurations is 1.5.3

I downloaded logstash 2.2.2 zip for windows from the download page.
I copied my configurations over from 1.5.3 logstash directory. I have a config directory with the configurations broken out into different files: 1 file for inputs, 1 file for each filter, and 1 file for outputs.

I setup the input to read a test file, and the output to write to a file so I can verify things look correct, but it appears that logstash isn't even reading the input file. After logstash starts up I see no activity in my output directory until I hit CNTRL-C to stop logstash then the since_db file is created with no data in the file.

Here is my input configuration:
input {
file {
path => "D:/temp/log_stash/testfile.txt"
type => "TG"
start_position => "beginning"
sincedb_path => "D:/temp/log_stash/tg_sincedb"

Output configuration:
output {
if [type] == "TG" {
file {
path => "D:/temp/log_stash/tg_results.txt"
flush_interval => 0

Filter for my custom log file:
filter {
if [type] == "TG" {

  mutate {
     gsub => [ "message", "\r", "" ] 

  grok {
     match => ["message", "\[%{TIMESTAMP_ISO8601:LogTimestamp}\] %{WORD:Status}-%{GREEDYDATA:RepId}, %{GREEDYDATA:Test}, Session:%{GREEDYDATA:Session}, package id: %{UUID:ClientPackageIdentifier}, %{TIMESTAMP_ISO8601:SentAt}, (?<ClientIdentifier>\S*)",
	   "message", "\[%{TIMESTAMP_ISO8601:LogTimestamp}\] %{WORD:Status}-%{GREEDYDATA:RepId}, Session:%{GREEDYDATA:Session}, package id: %{UUID:ClientPackageIdentifier}, %{TIMESTAMP_ISO8601:ReceivedAt}, Sequence:%{NUMBER:Sequence}, RequestRetries:%{NUMBER:RequestRetries}, ResponseRetries:%{NUMBER:ResponseRetries}, %{WORD:ResponseReason}, %{WORD:ErrorCode}, Occured at: %{TIMESTAMP_ISO8601:OccuredAt}, SSI:%{POSINT:SSI}, ClientId: %{GREEDYDATA:ClientIdentifier}, RadioType: %{GREEDYDATA:RadioType}",
	   "message", "\[%{TIMESTAMP_ISO8601:LogTimestamp}\] Response-%{DATA:Status}, Radio id:%{GREEDYDATA:RepId}, Package id:(?<ClientIdentifier>\S*)"
	 add_tag => [ "%{ClientIdentifier}" ]
	 add_tag => [ "%{Status}" ]
    date {
        match => ["LogTimestamp", "YYYY-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.SSS"]

    #if "_grokparsefailure" in [tags] {
    #   drop { }

elapsed {
   start_tag => "Sending"
   end_tag => "Response"
   unique_id_field => "ClientPackageIdentifier"
   timeout => 61
   new_event_on_match => false

Any help would be appreciated.


Perhaps the input file is old than one day? See the ignore_older option.

yep, that was it.
Set that value to a year, and the file was processed as expected.

I was searching all over the change logs and breaking changes; completely missed that setting.

Thank you!
