The Logstash Config Guide

About the Book
Ever since I stumbled across Logstash I've loved it to bits. The fact that you can string together totally disparate systems, from xmpp to redmine and files on s3 to nagios, with a simple config makes it a wonderful plaything and very useful utility. The rub, though, is in the config: Even though a great effort is made to write proper docs, I've found the documentation to be unclear, incomplete and sometimes confusing. So I've decided to do something about it.
This book contains focused guides on some of the more popular Logstash plugins, making it easier for people to set up and configure the different plugins. It points out the bare minimum required to get you up and running and also highlights some of the more interesting, but not necessarily necessary settings. You'll also find a complete reference of all the available settings, with working examples for each of them.
