I figured it was time to share my current template again, as much has changed since Logstash 1.2. Among the changes include:
doc_values everywhere applicable Defaults for all numeric types, using doc_values Proper mapping for the raw sub-field Leaving the message field analyzed, and with no raw sub-field Added ip, latitude, and longitude fields to the geoip […]
Of course, that is only partially true. The search engine really only saved me money from having to have a service technician come to my house to do a 10 minute repair.
“So what happened?” you might ask. I was working in my office at home. It seemed a bit warm, but it was 105°F/40.6°C outside. […]
Zabbix 2.2 will be the first version which will allow web scenario templating. But in the days of 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0, I had (still have) serious shortcomings in web monitoring to overcome. I had hundreds of URLs which needed monitoring with a large bulk of them being nearly identical, or at least having identical […]

No, I am not the author. I am, however, in the credits on page 1, with links and examples drawn from some of the content on this site. The author, James Turnbull, approached me and asked if it would be okay to do so and […]
I got sick of hard-coding calls to the python Zabbix API module (https://github.com/gescheit/scripts), so I wrote zoop: Zabbix Object-Oriented Python.
With zoop, I have made (and will continue to add) classes, or objects if you will, of Zabbix API calls. Need to create a new item?
I finally created a repository on GitHub for all of my Zabbix scripts (or, if you want to go directly to the repository: https://github.com/untergeek/zabbix-grab-bag)
This is the culmination of a dream that started a few years ago. I wanted a way to share […]
I have just forked zbx-statsd from github into ls-zbxstatsd.
The reason for this is that zbx-statsd was not compatible with the format coming from logstash’s statsd output plugin.
Statsd format is simply “key:value|[type]”.
In logstash, “key” is different, and the format becomes “namespace.sender.’whatever you […]
Update 2015-08-31: My most recent template/mapping can be found here.
2013-11-07: Another year, and things in the Logstash and Elasticsearch have grown and changed considerably. I am now employed by Elasticsearch to work on Logstash. This was one of the first things they wanted me to work on. So I […]
