Can someone help me in setting up logstash as a system daemon. I have download logstash-7.9.1.tar.gz
Just extract the binaries and logstash is runnable, you might want to document yourself on how to create a systemd service.
Just google it !
I have Googled and tried to setup. It Start's the process and exit with the below error
root@dev-server:~# systemctl status logstash ● logstash.service - logstash Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/logstash.service; disabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Fri 2020-10-09 04:14:51 UTC; 4s ago Process: 46465 ExecStart=/app01/logstash-7.9.1/bin/logstash --path.settings /app01/logstash-7.9.1/config (code=exited, status=216/GROUP) Main PID: 46465 (code=exited, status=216/GROUP) Oct 09 04:14:51 dev-server systemd: Started logstash.

TimeoutStopSec=infinity [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
I got the fix.
logstash-7.9.1 folder was under different user. I changed it root user. It started working.
Well done !
