Protobuf code plugin without Logstash


I want to do a POC to send data (hello world), using protobuf, to my Elasticsearch. I see that there is a "protobuf codec plugin" but is for Logstash

  • Do I need to install Logstash to send data to Elasticsearch using protobuf?
  • Is there a way to send data directly to Elasticsearch, using protobuf, without using Logstash?

Thank you.

If you don't want to use Logstash then you will need to do something else to get it to Elasticsearch, it has no idea of how to decode that format.

Hi warkolm,

Thank you for your answer. So, the best idea is use Logstash as entry point for all data that I want to put into Elasticsearch, right?


If it has an input that can deal with it, then yes.
