When running logstash directly I always get this warning message:
WARNING: Could not find logstash.yml which is typically located in $LS_HOME/config or /etc/logstash. You can specify the path using --path.settings. Continuing using the defaults
Even if it has no negative effect I would like to get rid of it. I tried it by using:
bin/logstash --path.setting=/etc/logstash -t -f /etc/logstash/conf.d/logstash.conf
But this lead to an error message:
ERROR: Unrecognised option '--path.setting'
See: 'bin/logstash --help'
However 'bin/logstash --help' leads to:
--path.settings SETTINGS_DIR Directory containing logstash.yml file. This can also be
set through the LS_SETTINGS_DIR environment variable.
Obviously there is something I'm doing in the wrong way, but I don't have a clue what this is. I would appreciate if anyone could lead me to the right direction.
