I have a table on MySQL server that I want to push to ES.
I can accomplish this with the jdbc plugin, but I found it a little heavy on the mysql server, each time it starts it run a
SELECT count(*) AS `count` FROM (:statement)
where statement is the parameter i put in config file logstash.conf, why logstash needs to retrieve this count of records? Is it mandatory or we can skip this?
thanks in advance
