Logstash 6.0.0-alpha2 Release Notesedit

  • Breaking: Currently, when Logstash is installed and set up via package managers, it loads all files found in /etc/logstash/conf.d as configuration. This can be problematic if there are non-configuration files in this folder. Starting from alpha2, Logstash will only glob files ending with .conf extension in /etc/logstash/conf.d (Issue 6979)).
  • Added support for running multiple pipelines in the same Logstash instance. Running multiple pipelines allow users to isolate data flow, provide separate runtime pipeline parameters and helps simplify complex configurations.
  • A new pipelines.yml configuration file has been added to define pipelines.
