Logstash RPMs for RedHat Enterprise.

Repackage the monolithic jar into separate RPM packages:

logstash-common  - contains .jar and shared dirs, etc.
logstash-shipper - daemon to ship logs
logstash-indexer - daemon to receive & process logs
logstash-web     - web interface


  • spec file
  • log4j configuration as separate file (no need to patch jar)
  • init script

Simply dump the contents of the SOURCES and SPECS dirs in your build environment, grab the monolithic jar file [1] and put it in your SOURCES dir too and build like any other RPM.
