Demonstrate a very-basic container logstash set-up.


  1. In shell 1, do docker-compose up
  2. In shell 2, send some generated data into logstash's tcp port with:
while `true`; do echo "$(date +'%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S') logging tcp data $RANDOM" | nc localhost 5000; sleep 1; done;
  1. In shell 2, run a container that logs to stdout with:
# important - do *not* attach tty via -t
docker run --rm alpine echo "$(date +'%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S') logging container stdout data $RANDOM"
You can’t perform that action at this time.
