  • Default value is "UTF-8"

The character encoding used in this input. Examples include UTF-8 and cp1252

This setting is useful if your log files are in Latin-1 (aka cp1252) or in another character set other than UTF-8.

This only affects "plain" format logs since json is UTF-8 already.

formatedit

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

Set the message you which to emit for each event. This supports sprintf strings.

This setting only affects outputs (encoding of events).
