  • There is no default value for this setting.

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.

codecedit

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

The codec used for input data. Input codecs are a convenient method for decoding your data before it enters the input, without needing a separate filter in your Logstash pipeline.

debug (DEPRECATED)edit

  • DEPRECATED WARNING: This configuration item is deprecated and may not be available in future versions.
  • Value type is boolean
  • Default value is false

format (DEPRECATED)edit

  • DEPRECATED WARNING: This configuration item is deprecated and may not be available in future versions.
  • Value can be any of: plain, json, json_event, msgpack_event
  • There is no default value for this setting.

The format of input data (plain, json, json_event)

hostedit

  • Value type is string
  • Default value is "0.0.0.0"

The IP address to listen on.

max_clients (DEPRECATED)edit

  • DEPRECATED WARNING: This configuration item is deprecated and may not be available in future versions.
  • Value type is number
  • Default value is 1000

Number of maximum clients that the lumberjack input will accept, this allow you to control the back pressure up to the client and stop logstash to go OOM with connection. This settings is a temporary solution and will be deprecated really soon.

message_format (DEPRECATED)edit

  • DEPRECATED WARNING: This configuration item is deprecated and may not be available in future versions.
  • Value type is string
  • There is no default value for this setting.

If format is json, an event sprintf string to build what the display @message should be given (defaults to the raw JSON). sprintf format strings look like %{fieldname}

If format is json_event, ALL fields except for @type are expected to be present. Not receiving all fields will cause unexpected results.

portedit

  • This is a required setting.
  • Value type is number
  • There is no default value for this setting.

The port to listen on.

ssl_certificateedit

  • This is a required setting.
  • Value type is path
  • There is no default value for this setting.

SSL certificate to use.

ssl_keyedit

  • This is a required setting.
  • Value type is path
  • There is no default value for this setting.

SSL key to use.

ssl_key_passphraseedit

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

SSL key passphrase to use.

tagsedit

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

Add any number of arbitrary tags to your event.

This can help with processing later.

typeedit

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

Add a type field to all events handled by this input.

Types are used mainly for filter activation.

The type is stored as part of the event itself, so you can also use the type to search for it in Kibana.

If you try to set a type on an event that already has one (for example when you send an event from a shipper to an indexer) then a new input will not override the existing type. A type set at the shipper stays with that event for its life even when sent to another Logstash server.
