Logstash is an open-source data processing pipeline that can ingest, parse, transform, and send your data to a variety of output sources like Elasticsearch, Apache Kafka, and more. It is part of the Elastic Stack along with Elasticsearch & Kibana and is commonly used to parse log files and other types of data.
