Logstash Installation

Logstash is one of the software from Elastic stack to collect logs from different data sources and send logs to Elastic search. It will take data from different sources and process data as per our requirements.



Software and Tools


Windows 10

Java 1.8 or higher





Download and Extract

Go to elastic search download page and download Logstash.


Direct link as follows


Extract downloaded zip in local drive




Start Logstash

Open command prompt and locate to bin directory of Logstash and use below command to start.


logstash.bat -e "input { stdin { } } output { stdout {} }"



Actually, we need to pass Logstash configuration file as input to start command but we have not decided input/output configuration so we just started with dummy input/output.


Finally, Logstash API can be accessible on 9600 port
