Logstash Ubuntu Package Build

This repo does not contain an actual package (committing binary files to git is really a bad idea!).

It contains required files and scripts to build a proper Ubuntu package for logstash as well as separate upstart scripts for both shipper and indexer services and a sample config file.

Requirements

  • Ubuntu 12.04 or newer (may work with other versions)
  • root (to install pbuilder and dev tools)
  • common sense

Howto

You can use a Jenkins or any Ubuntu vagrant instance if you don't want to install dev tools on your main OS.

git clone https://github.com/TagManCode/logstash-deb
cd logstash-deb
./build.sh 1.2.1

build.sh script takes one argument - logstash upstream version, it uses that to fetch the right logstash jar file, so make sure that the version you want to build actually exists.

This will produce a properly built deb package with all the necessary bits included.

Happy logstashing!
