Logstash

A flexible, open source data collection, enrichment, and transportation pipeline. With connectors to common infrastructure for easy integration, Logstash is designed to efficiently process a growing list of log, event, and unstructured data sources for distribution into a variety of outputs, including Elasticsearch.

Usage

This charm makes use of interface:java which means you will need to deploy a compatible JRE along with the Logstash application. This allows the consumer to swap the version of java being used by configuring the system's java installation.

 juju deploy logstash
 juju deploy openjdk
 juju add-relation logstash openjdk
This charm is bundled for your convenience.

Typically Logstash is deployed along side its companion products Elasticsearch and Kibana. This suite of applications is known as the ELK stack, and is deployable today:

juju deploy ~elasticsearch-charmers/bundle/elk-stack
Testing the deployment

The applications provide extended status reporting to indicate when they are ready:

juju status

This is particularly useful when combined with watch to track the on-going progress of the deployment:

watch juju status

The message for each unit will provide information about that unit's state. Once they all indicate that they are ready, you can use the provided generate-noise action to test that the applications are working as expected:

juju run-action logstash/0 generate-noise
watch juju show-action-status

Once the action is complete, you can retrieve the results:

juju show-action-output <action-id>

The <action-id> value will be in the juju show-action-status.
