Logstash Ports 5044, 9600 and 9700


I am confused about Logstash Ports 5044, 9600 and 9700. Can somebody please explain to me about these ports what all process are mapped to it. I have two logstash servers which are set up behind AWS Load Balancer. Which port do i need to map in AWS ELB to do load balancing between two logstash servers?

Thanks in Advance and i look forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,



5044 is a default beats port. The input plugin for beats
9600 - 9700 is for web api calls

Hope this helps,


@pjanzen Thanks a lot for the answer and much appreciated.
