We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Nelmo/logstash — version 1.0.0 Sep 7th 2012


This module installs and manages logstash software and configuration. Through declaration, you can configure directors and configuration files. It's usable on Debian 5/6 & Redhat 4/5/6 systems.


1° Java must be installed on your system 2° Ensure command "which java" return the good java luncher path


1° Download latest logstash version and configure install.pp ex : logstash-1.1.1-monolithic.jar open /logstash/manifest/install.pp Modify $logstash_binary value by name of your logstash binary name : --> $logstash_binary = 'logstash-1.1.1-monolithic.jar'

2° Push binary in file directory ex : mv logstash-1.1.1-monolithic.jar/logstash/files/


This puppet module provides management of configuration files :

  • basic configuration files for all nodes
  • configuration files specific by host

host : "foobar" Monitored software : "postgres"

If you have a host with specific software (postgres), you can add a configuration file named "logstash_postgres.foobar" in the logstash/files/conf.d/ directory of the puppetmaster. You can imagine that logstash_postgres.conf manages a lot of postgres instances log files. After a puppet run, host named 'foobar' has in /etc/logstash/conf.d/ files logstash_base.conf and logstash_postgres.conf
