Netflow Module (--setup) Broken


(Clay Curtis) #1

I have been messing with the most basic thing for two days now and cannot get it to function.

I am trying to run bin/logstash --modules netflow --setup and it fails. Without --setup it doesn't crash, but I need it to configure ES and Kibana to make all the dashboards and such. I originally was trying to use the netflow collector on a device and ship the logs directly to an ESaas instance in Amazon AWS. This kept failing out and I thought it might be due to AWS' custom build of that service.

So then I tried docker-elk and it still failed so I just followed the docs and installed ELK on my local ubuntu machine (not containerized) from the elastic repo as the docs show. Even with a clean install with everything running on localhost, running bin/logstash --modules netflow --setup fails with the following logs.

At this point, I can only assume it is a bug. Has anybody else run into this issue?

You may want to try ElastiFlow...

The Logstash Netflow Module was based on ElastiFlow 1.0.0 and is quite dated now.
