Reading Epoch As @timestamp

For the life of me my Google searching has not revealed any solution to
this at least none that work for me. I have log data with an Epoch
timestamp in it and would like to use the date filter in Logstash to
overwrite @timestamp with the appropriate converted timestamp derived from
that epoch. Any insight on this would be much appreciated.

Hi ,

What exactly do you mean by "overwrite @timestamp".
It would be also helpful if you can quite an example.

Thanks
Vineeth

If you are using logstash to push your events do ES you need something like
this:

date {
match => [ "<field_with_the_epoch>", "UNIX" ]
}

Read more about it here: http://logstash.net/docs/1.4.2/filters/date

Hello Antonio ,

I am aware of this.
The example you have quoted should actually work.
Why do you feel that its not working.

Thanks
Vineeth

Antonio's example works. My problem was a syntax issue as the Logstash
docs do not really have examples. I was not able to figure out the
formatting.
