Logstash

Logstash is an open-source server-side data processing pipeline that allows you to collect data from a variety of sources, transform it on the fly, and send it to your desired destination.

ⓘ Logstash is an optional component within the Dynamite stack and is not installed as part of the monitor. DynamiteNSM does not currently provide an automated integration strategy with Logstash.

Once installed, Logstash must be manually configured to listen for events from the agent, forwarding them downstream to a collector of your choice.

DynamiteNSM pre-configures Logstash with several useful defaults, and automatically optimizes its use of the JVM heap.
