I'm using two Instances of Logstash on one Debian Server and I want to upgrade to v5. I'm using the repositories 2.3 now. With version 2.3 all I had to do was copy and edit the init script files and using two different config folders. Is there a easy way of doing this with version 5.0?
I copied the /etc/systemd/system/logstash.service and edited it this way:
[Service] Type=simple User=logstash Group=logstash # Load env vars from /etc/default/ and /etc/sysconfig/ if they exist. # Prefixing the path with '-' makes it try to load, but if the file doesn't # exist, it continues onward. EnvironmentFile=-/etc/default/logstash.shipper EnvironmentFile=-/etc/sysconfig/logstash ExecStart=/usr/share/logstash/bin/logstash "--path.settings" "/etc/logstash/conf.shipper" Restart=always WorkingDirectory=/ [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
I also copied logstash.yml, startup.option and log4j.properties in /etc/logstash/conf.shipper but this wont help. Can someone help me with installing multiple logstash5 instances?
