Elkwin FAQs

I have multiple configuration files for Logstash!

Elkwin Logstash uses <inst.dir>/logstash/logstash.conf as the configuration file. If you want to arrange your Logstash configuration as multiple files, you can create a directory with the same name and copy your files into it. Keep in mind that they will be processed in alphabetical order and a kind of numbering/sorting mechanism can be necessary.

How to install new plugins in Logstash 5.x ?

You can use Logstash plugin-manager to install/manage plugins:


SET JAVA_HOME=<Elkwin inst.dir>\java

CD <Elkwin inst.dir>\logstash

bin\logstash-plugin.bat install <plugin-name>
