I am currently working on a test instance of logstash. It has been working fine until recently I did a service logstash restart because I change a configuration file slightly. Since then logstash won't start. It just continually restarts and posts this message to syslog.
logstash: [ERROR] 2018-04-13 15:06:48.901 [main] Logstash - java.lang.IllegalStateException: org.jruby.exceptions.RaiseException: (LoadError) load error: jopenssl -- java.lang.RuntimeException: BUG: we can not copy embedded jar to temp directory
The server is running Ubuntu 16.04
Logstash was installed using .deb
The configuration I changed was just removing a whole filter line from a conf.d file. The change shouldn't be causing this kind of error.
Any help would be great!
