Parse Amazon S3 access log with multiple files

Hello All,

I am trying to parse Amazon S3 access log that has multiple chunks of the file. When i say multiple chunks i mean there are thousand of separate files with each files containing data in it. The data in these files are not JSON. I am having a tough time determining how to parse these files with logstash. Below is my logstash config i am using but apparently i do not see any data been logged with elasticsearch.

input {
file {
type => "s3-access-log"
path => "/opt/s3logs/logs/*"
sincedb_path => "/dev/null"
start_position => "beginning"
filter {
if [type] == "s3-access-log" {
grok {
match => { "message" => "%{S3_ACCESS_LOG}" }
date {
locale => "en"
match => [ "timestamp" , "dd/MMM/yyyy:HH:mm:ss Z" ]
output {
elasticsearch {
host => ["elk-prod-02-data01"]
index => "niraj-hello-s3-%{+YYYY.MM.dd}"
stdout { codec => rubydebug }

Any help would be great.


Are you getting anything in stdout?

This is what i get now when i added a port to the logstash config. But what i dont understand with the above is that even if it is displaying that it is adding something to the elasticsearch but i do not see any index in elasticsearch been created.

ES Version:- 1.5
LS Version:- 1.5

Why are you on such an old LS version?
You should switch to http protocol?


The reason i have a old protocol is our current ES is on ES 1.5 and i did not wanted to upgrade it as of now so i started using a compatible version of ES.

When you say switch to http protocol, does this mean i should specify in protocol => "http" in output section of Logstash config.

LS and ES are not locked like that, you can run 2.3.X LS with 1.5.X ES.

And yes, that is correct.

I didn't knew that. Well i would try that for sure and let you know.

After upgrading to LS 1.5.3 and adding protocol => http , the s3 logs were getting successfully ingested. Somehow the LS 1.5.0 which i had was getting crashed after few successful runs.

Thanks a lot Mark for pointing it out.
