Also see Common Options for a list of options supported by all output plugins.

 

flush_sizeedit

  • Value type is number
  • Default value is 1024

To make efficient calls to the lumberjack output we are buffering events locally. if the number of events exceed the number the declared flush_size we will send them to the logstash server.

hostsedit

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

idle_flush_timeedit

  • Value type is number
  • Default value is 1

The amount of time since last flush before a flush is forced.

This setting helps ensure slow event rates don’t get stuck in Logstash. For example, if your flush_size is 100, and you have received 10 events, and it has been more than idle_flush_time seconds since the last flush, Logstash will flush those 10 events automatically.

This helps keep both fast and slow log streams moving along in near-real-time.

Common Optionsedit

The following configuration options are supported by all output plugins:

Setting Input typeRequired

codec

codec

No

enable_metric

boolean

No

id

string

No

workers

number

No

codecedit

  • 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.

enable_metricedit

  • 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 grok filters. Adding a named ID in this case will help in monitoring Logstash when using the monitoring APIs.

output {
 stdout {
   id => "my_plugin_id"
 }
}

workersedit

  • Value type is string
  • Default value is 1
