I've noticed that new packaging system (tested rc1) has probably few flaws:
- "service logstash stop/start" doesn't work anymore due to being handled by upstart start/stop, which breaks most automation in a great way (I ended up deploying my own "dummy" /etc/init.d/logstash to workaround this),
- looks like settings from /etc/logstash/startup.options are completely ignored (yes, I've ran system-install)
- systemd files are created with: EnvironmentFile=-/etc/default/logstash EnvironmentFile=-/etc/sysconfig/logstash but logstash isn't shipped with them anymore and they aren't generated by anything either
- again, settings from /etc/logstash/startup.options are completely ignored (yes, I've ran system-install)
Is all this anyhow expected/fixable?
Also it's sligthly inconvienient that "system-install" script deletes its logs immediately. Couldn't this be saved somewhere under /var/lib/logstash on overwritten on every run?
