Detailsedit

 

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.

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.

list of addresses lumberjack can send to

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.
