Very basic python logstash shipper
This is very simple replacement for ElasticSearch filebeat.
pip install git+https://github.com/stavinsky/lsshipper
after that create config directory anywhere you want and put 2 config files there.
It can be started as a module:
python -m lsshipper --config_dir <dir with configs>
There is windows software that adds preallocated block of zeroes(\x00) to log file. Original filebeat skips such blocks. So big part of logs can be lost.
On my mac mini late 2003 it can write to network about 2Mb/s. I will test later on windows and linux. I believe on linux it should be much faster.
On very fast server reconnects it can loose one log string. Please check test_connection.py
