I was wondering where Logstash is storing the log files that it has read and indexed. I was reading up a little on github and apparently the default folder for this is var/log/syslog but when I jump into the log folder I cannot find a file called syslog. I don't know if this is a setting that you must change somewhere. Worth mentioning is that I am not using a logstash forwarder. Right now I'm having everything on the same server just to try it out and explore.
Any help would be appreciated.
