Note: this plugin has only been tested with GemFire 7.0.

Common Options

The following configuration options are supported by all output plugins:

SettingInput typeRequired











  • Value type is codec
  • Default value is "plain"

The codec used for output data. Output codecs are a convenient method for encoding your data before it leaves the output without needing a separate filter in your Logstash pipeline.


  • Value type is boolean
  • Default value is true

Disable or enable metric logging for this specific plugin instance. By default we record all the metrics we can, but you can disable metrics collection for a specific plugin.


  • Value type is string
  • There is no default value for this setting.

Add a unique ID to the plugin configuration. If no ID is specified, Logstash will generate one. It is strongly recommended to set this ID in your configuration. This is particularly useful when you have two or more plugins of the same type. For example, if you have 2 gemfire outputs. Adding a named ID in this case will help in monitoring Logstash when using the monitoring APIs.

output {
  gemfire {
    id => "my_plugin_id"
