Logstash-syslog-output failed to load plugin code


I am a newbie trying to write standard output into my syslog server, I am having issues to load Syslog output plugin code. Find below the error received:

[2018-11-14T01:07:00,302][WARN ][logstash.config.source.multilocal] Ignoring the 'pipelines.yml' file because modules or command line options are specified

Same error also received with version 6.3.1

My config file is as follow:

Author: Christian ABI KHALIL / DXC

input {
stdin{ }

output {
stdout {
codec => rubydebug
syslog {
facility => "log alert"
host => ""
port => "514"
severity => "critical"
appname => "logstash"
message => "Test Message"
msgid => "ID1"
procid => "data"
rfc => "rfc5424"
sourcehost => "elkstack"

Thanks for having a look
