Hi folks, I upgraded ELK stack on Ubuntu Server 16.04 using this as repo:
APT-Sources: https://artifacts.elastic.co/packages/5.x/apt stable/main amd64 Packages
from 2.x to 5.x and that was largely problem-free except that my logstash output exec stuff stopped working. Turns out this isn't available by default and I must install logstash-output-exec plugin.
Fine, I installed it with:
/usr/share/logstash/bin/logstash-plugin install logstash-output-exec
restarted logstash, things are good.
There have been two or three upgrades in the 5.x Ubuntu repo since, and each time I upgrade I have to reinstall the above plugin.
Is this normal?
