websocket

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-websocket.

This output runs a websocket server and publishes any messages to all connected websocket clients.

You can connect to it with ws://<host\>:<port\>/

If no clients are connected, any messages received are ignored.
