Logstash - Parsing Log Messages


(Sunil) #1

Hi,

I have a log file which contains a timestamp and logs message as shown below:
I need one multiple pattern such that if the line does not start with the timestamp it should be joined with the preceding line. Can anyone post me how input plugin should be written for this scenario.

Here is my log message:

10-05-2018 00:00:00.0031 DEBUG Thd: 6540 [Schedule] (checkSchedules) Chequea a: 10/05/2018 12:00:00 AM ON 10/05/2018 12:00:00 AM

The Logstash documentation contains an example of something very similar: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/logstash/current/multiline.html

I have used multiline codec, but its not working as expected, I mean it is taking all lines between two lines, only it is taking 2 or 3 lines. And remaining lines are going with next event.

This is configuration file:

input {
file {
path => ["D:/Sample/*"]
start_position => "beginning"
sincedb_path => "/dev/null"
codec => multiline {
pattern => "^(\s)"
what => "previous"
}
}
}

output {
elasticsearch {
hosts => ["localhost:9200"]
index => "sample-%{+YYYY.MM.dd}"
}
stdout {}

}


Logstash - Merge multiple lines into one event

Please show an example of the input and the resulting events. Use a stdout { codec => rubydebug } output to dump the raw events and make sure you format the example input as preformatted text.

This is my Input

start_position => "beginning"
sincedb_path => "/dev/null"
codec => multiline {
pattern => "^(\s)"
what => "previous"
}
}
}

and the output got generated is shown below:

{
"@timestamp" => 2018-05-23T04:56:10.448Z,
"path" => "D:/TestLogs/tm20180510",

}

I repeat: Make sure you format the example input as preformatted text. Use Markdown notation or the </> toolbar button.

But I can see in your output that the second line of the message doesn't begin with a whitespace character, it starts with "Adecef". That's why the multiline codec doesn't work. Have a look at this example instead: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/logstash/current/multiline.html#_timestamps
