Hey All,

So…I’ve been mucking with Logstash for a couple weeks, and here’s my attempt at getting it to go:


Below paste bin is my logstash.conf:


This config has a couple more items…noticeably iptables firewall hits and SASL failures.  You should be able to nuke those sections out if not applicable.  A quick and dirty go of it:

Download https://download.elasticsearch.org/logstash/logstash/logstash-1.2.2-flatjar.jar

change the path to your syslog file

run the web process first with (dump to background with &):  java -jar logstast-1.2.2-flatjar.jar web &

run the config process with: java -jar logstash-1.2.2-flatjar.jar agent -f logstash.conf

Wait a few, then point your browser to hostname:9292
