Using logstash v2.3.2
I have a *.conf file that I use for this command
/opt/logstash/bin/logstash -f /path/mylogstash.conf
I was able to run this yesterday and was able to produce my desired mylogstash.json output file. I then logged out of the logstash server, and went home for the day.
Today, I logged back in the logstash server, deleted my mylogstash.json output file, and the ~/.sincedb* file. I then re-ran the above command, but did NOT get an output file.
What would cause this, that is, logstash producing an output JSON file one day, and not the next day, using the same *.conf file?
