I have logstash and elastic search installed.
I'm trying to get logstash to read a csv file and populate ES
everything works fine when I run logstash from the command line using:
sudo /opt/logstash/bin/logstash -f /etc/logstash/conf.d/products.conf
but when running the logstash service the csv file isn't read and no index is created.
chmod 777 the csv file
moving the csv to /tmp/
editing the logstash config file (/etc/init.d/logstash) and changing LS_USER=root
i've checked my config file with --configtest and everything is ok
how do I get the logstash service to read the csv file?
i'm using CentOS 6.5
this is the output from the logstash.stdout log:
Writing garbage collection logs to ./logstash-gc.log
Sending logstash logs to /var/log/logstash/logstash.log.
Error: Expected one of #, input, filter, output at line 1, column 1 (byte 1) af$
You may be interested in the '--configtest' flag which you can
use to validate logstash's configuration before you choose
to restart a running system.
