Logstash 6.2.2 high CPU usage


(Julian) #1

I upgraded Elastic Stack from 5.6.3 to 6.2.2, but the Logstash CPU usage go high and no error logs.

Start command:

./logstash -f '/data/conf/main.conf' -l /data/logs/logstash/

Logstash config:

input {
  beats {
    port => 5044
    add_field => {
      "logstashId" => "logstash1"
    }
  }
}

output {
  elasticsearch {
    action => "index"
    hosts  => ["localhost:9200"]
    index  => "test-%{+YYYY.MM.dd}"
    manage_template => false
    template_overwrite => true
    document_type => "%{[@metadata][type]}"
  }
}

What could be possible reason for high CPU usage?


Logstash use 100% CPU in lazy mode
Logstash 6.4.1 & 6.5.0 High CPU usage

Do you have 'config.reload.automatic' set to 'true' in your logstash.yml?

Disabling the automatic config reload resolved the issue for us:

config.reload.automatic: false

Yes, I set 'config.reload.automatic' to 'true' in logstash.yml, but the root cause is not here.
The value of "config.reload.interval" is not same between 5.6 and 6.2:

5.6:

config.reload.interval : 3

6.2

config.reload.interval : 3s

so it reload the config files all the time. after the value changed from '3' to '3s', the CPU usage go down.
