Logstash service exits when it gets log


#1

I use ELK stack to monitor logs from pfSense but I have a problem. As soon as I enable the remote logs on pfSense, Logstash stops, the service status is : active (exited).

The last logs from logstash.log :

{:timestamp=>"2017-05-09T12:15:44.940000+0200", :message=>"SIGTERM received. Shutting down the pipeline.",           :level=>:warn}
{:timestamp=>"2017-05-09T12:15:45.328000+0200", :message=>"UDP listener died", :exception=>#<IOError: closed stream>, :backtrace=>["org/jruby/RubyIO.java:3682:in `select'", "/opt/logstash/vendor/bundle/jruby/1.9/gems/logstash-input-udp-2.0.5/lib/logstash/inputs/udp.rb:77:in `udp_listener'", "/opt/logstash/vendor/bundle/jruby/1.9/gems/logstash-input-udp-2.0.5/lib/logstash/inputs/udp.rb:50:in `run'", "/opt/logstash/vendor/bundle/jruby/1.9/gems/logstash-core-2.2.4-java/lib/logstash/pipeline.rb:334:in `inputworker'", "/opt/logstash/vendor/bundle/jruby/1.9/gems/logstash-core-2.2.4-java/lib/logstash/pipeline.rb:328:in `start_input'"], :level=>:warn}

logs from logstash.err :

#2

I found out that it's the file output part of logstash conf file that doesn't work. How to give the rights to Logstash to write into /logs?

Hello:

Which are the permissions of such a folder. Which owner and ghroup? Have you thought about adding elasticsearch user to such a group ?
