Lumberjack input with multiple files

Hi All,

With no stream_identity field in multiline codec, can someone tell me how to handle multiple files coming in through lumberjack protocol? I am using Logstash 1.5 GA

What do you want to do here, multiple stream or multiline, they are different things.

I want to do both. I have multiple files that logstash-forwarder is sending to the logstash instance. I have to do multiline on the receiving end to handle stack tracks etc. So far i do not see any intermixing of the log from different files. I see that there are TCP connections equal to how many files i am sending. So i assume that logstash-forwarder is opening a new stream for each file and therefore there is no need for stream_identity anymore.
