I'm in the process of upgrading from 1.4.2 to 1.5.2.
In 1.4.2, I ran Logstash with the 'web' option which I could then use in my ELB healthcheck.
<somepath>/logstash agent -f /etc/logstash.conf -l /<logdir>/logstash.log --verbose web -p <port>
This worked great, but it looks like the
web option was removed from the agent in 1.5.0. Searching turns up some old posts about monitoring for consumption of messages (e.g. redis). We run pretty vanilla
forwarder -> logstash and it works well for us (we're not too worried about losing a few messages).
Any simple suggestions?
