Logstash http input for files containing multiple events


(Carmen Spohn) #1

We have a file containing multiple json formatted events and we would like to use the http-input in logstash to receive it. From reading the documentation it seems like the http-input is designed to only receive one event per http request, is that correct? (When I posted the file, looks like only the first event gets processed).

Is there any way we could send this file with multiple events via http to logstash? Or is the only option to install Beats in the client?

That's probably right, but the split and clone filters can (in different ways) split a single event into multiple events.
