What could be the reason for this kind of failure?


(Paris Mermigkas) #2

Seems like it is caused by a bug in the split filter, where sometimes an array containing null values was not handled properly. It's apparently fixed on version 3.1.6 as per https://github.com/logstash-plugins/logstash-filter-split/pull/31
