Logstash Config Issues


(Jack ELK West) #1

I used to have a single input to logstash which I then parsed through conditional statements. I am now adding another input that won't apply to any of the prior work.

  1. Can I just add tags to the input and add another large if else conditional around all of my prior parsing so it skips it?

  2. I want to put this into elasticsearch in a separate index with a separate template. Do I still send both outputs to IP:9200?

  3. I'm also using shield does that effect any of this?

Any input would be helpful. I pay for support however, my support guy is busy until monday and i'd really like to work on this today.

Thanks,
Jack West

Yes.

The host:port specification selects which ES cluster you're sending events to. Use the index option to select which index (or index series) to send the events to.

Nope.
