Logstash s3 input error


(Niraj Kumar) #1

I am using logstash input plugin to fetch logs from s3.

Below is my config.

input {
  s3 {
    type => "redshift-access-log"
    bucket => "xxxxxxxxxxxxx"
    prefix => "xxxxxxxxxxxxx"
    proxy_uri => "xxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
    region => "us-west-2"
    access_key_id => "xxxxxxxxxxxxx"
    secret_access_key => "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
  }
}
filter {
    if [type] == "redshift-access-log" {
        grok {
            match => { "message" => "\A'%{SYSLOGBASE2:timestamp}%{CRON_ACTION}%{NOTSPACE}%{CRON_ACTION}%{EMAILLOCALPART:db}%{CRON_ACTION}%{EMAILLOCALPART:user}%{CRON_ACTION}%{EMAILLOCALPART:pid}%{CRON_ACTION}%{EMAILLOCALPART:userid}%{CRON_ACTION}%{EMAILLOCALPART:xid}%{CRON_ACTION}%{NOTSPACE}%{SPACE}%{GREEDYDATA:sql}" }
        }
    }
}

output {
  elasticsearch {
    hosts => ["xx.xx.xx.xx"]
 }
 stdout { codec => rubydebug }
}

I have a latest version of logstash installed. When i start the elasticsearch it eventually fails up with this error below
Error: can't convert nil into String.

Can someone please help on this.

  Error: certificate verify failed

(Magnus Bäck) #4

Error: certificate verify failed

But... that's a completely different error message. Which problem do you need help with?


(Niraj Kumar) #5

Yeah that is what i am not able to understand is that when i use the s3 plugin why do i get a certificate error.


(Magnus Bäck) #6

Are your SSL root certificates out of date? Is there a firewall or similar that breaks HTTPS?


(Niraj Kumar) #7

Sorry seems like i replied too fast.

I fixed up the certificate thing. It was because of my proxy issue but i get an Error: can't convert nil into String. now when i start logstash.


(Magnus Bäck) #8

Then you still haven't showed the complete error message and context for that error.

I had hoped the logs would include a stacktrace that pinpointed the exact spot the exception occurred. I don't know what's up here.


(Niraj Kumar) #11

@magnusbaeck What do I have to do here to provide you the stacktrace. If you can tell me how then I can provide you the same.


(Magnus Bäck) #12

I don't think there's a way (short of modifying the source code) to get Logstash to produce the stacktrace.


(Philipp) #13

Here are the steps to reproduce the Error: can't convert nil into String error:
