Use GeoIP2 database with geoip filter plugin


We are thinking of purchasing a license for Maxmind's GeoIP2 database. I've learned that Logstash uses the free Geolite2 database from Maxmind that might be less accurate. Would it be possible to configure logstash to use the paid version of the database, in any way? I wasn't really sure if it was hitting a local file that might be able to be replaced, or how that really worked in the background.

I appreciate any help. Thank you!

Yes, look at the path setting in the filter :slight_smile:

Hi warkolm,

Thank you for your response.

I don't see a path setting on the filter page:

is this what you were referring to?

Nevermind, I think you're referring to the database setting.

Ahh yes, sorry that is the correct one!
