Multiple logstash instance need to run on window 10

Hi Folks,

On my local machine logstash is working fine when I am running only one logstash pipeline, but when I am trying to run second logstash pipeline (config file) it says that

Logstash could not be started because there is already another instance using the configured data directory. If you wish to run multiple instances, you must change the "" setting.

but I don't know what I need to make change

OS: window 10 enterprise


You need to change the setting to a different directory. You could do that on the command line using


You could try and configure several pipelines on your pipelines.yml, each with its own path.config, and have just one logstash instance running.

Hope this helps
