Logstash is a server-side data processing pipeline that ingests data from a multitude of sources, transforms it, and then sends it to variety of targets. Logstash can be configured to send logs to Parseable with HTTP output plugin and JSON output format.

This document explains how to set up Logstash to ship logs to Parseable in Docker Compose. We use Logstash's generator input plugin to generate sample log data. Then we use the http output plugin to send these logs to Parseable.

Docker Compose

Please ensure Docker Compose installed on your machine.

mkdir parseable
cd parseable
docker-compose up -d

You can now access the Parseable dashboard on http://localhost:8000. You should see a log stream called logstashlogs populated with log data generated by the generator output plugin.
