boundary

This is a community-maintained plugin! It does not ship with Logstash by default, but it is easy to install by running bin/logstash-plugin install logstash-output-boundary.

This output lets you send annotations to Boundary based on Logstash events

Note that since Logstash maintains no state these will be one-shot events

By default the start and stop time will be the event timestamp
