Supported Docker and Linux Kernel versions:
ECE 1.X requires Docker version 1.11. While it may work with other Docker versions, it is known to break with certain combinations of Docker and kernel version, and has not been thoroughly tested with any Docker version other than 1.11.
ECE 2.0 supports the following Docker and OS combinations:
- Ubuntu 16.04 with Docker 18.03 (or Docker 1.11).
- Ubuntu 14.04 with Docker 1.11.
- RHEL 7.x with Red Hat Docker 1.13 (or Docker 1.11).
- CentOS 7.x with Red Hat Docker 1.13 (or Docker 1.11).
ECE requires Linux kernel version 3.10 or higher.
ECE requires kernel memory accounting to be disabled for all memory cgroups. Disable it by passing `cgroup.memory=nokmem` to the kernel at boot time.
**Zip/tar.gz archives only. RPM installation is not supported on SLES 11.

** Java 9 and Java 10 are short term releases. We advise against using them unless you're prepared to handle the fast release cadence this imposes. See Oracle's schedule for JVM support at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/eol-135779.html

Supported Logstash Plugins

The plugins listed below are maintained and supported by Elastic. Plugin versions that are installable on an Elastic supported Logstash release are considered supported.

The full list of all plugins in the Logstash ecosystem can be found in the product documentation:


Tier 1 Plugins

Definition: These incorporate Logstash plugins that Elastic have published directly and plugins that Elastic has a high degree of experience with. Elastic will provide support to new Support Requests at point of entry for all Severity Levels (1 through 3) but retain the right to downgrade Support Requests to Severity 3 should the root cause be isolated to an external system, service, or library.
