Pattern Cisco-ASA syslog message : Grokparsefailure

I used a cisco-asa pattern to filter my syslog message but i don't know why I keep getting tags:_grokparsefailure


Device chooses cipher ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384 for the SSL session with client INTERNET: to


Device chooses cipher %{GREEDYDATA:cipher} for the SSL session with %{DATA:peer-type} %{DATA:src_interface}:%{IP:src_ip}/%{INT:src_port} to %{IP:dst_ip}/%{INT:dst_port}

It could be me but you test grok pattern A but then in the logstash filter your using filter B. Those CISCOFW106* look like custom patterns, with the current setup it will try to match any of them and if one fails it adds the tag _grokparsefailure.

Try to add break_on_match and see of that will help.

I appreciate the feedback. So in my example its really the ASA-7-725012 that is getting the grok parse failure and that's the pattern I provided. I am not sure why its failing on matching. I looked at the break on match and it appears it defaults too true.

If you leave just your pattern and test it, does it still produce a _grokparsefailure?
