Logstash

Logstash (Log collection engine) collects Logs and events data, Parse and Transform. Logstash is a tool for managing events and logs. Logstash is a system of log collection, processing, storage and searching activities. Basically, it collects, processes, and forwards events and log messages. The Collection can be completed via configuring the “Input plugins” including raw socket/packet communication, file tailing, and several message bus clients. Once an input plugin has collected data it can be processed by any number of filters which modify and give an explanation of the event data. Finally, logstash will route the event data to output plugins which can forward the events to a variety of external programs including Elasticsearch, local files and several message bus implementations.
