Logstash is an open source streaming ETL (extract-transform-load) tool, capable of collecting data from multiple sources, reshaping, enriching and pushing it to multiple destinations. Logstash is structured around a set of more than 200 plugins and a core platform that wires them into continuously processing pipelines. The project is written in a mix of JRuby and Java.
Our team is small and distributed across the globe, and we communicate mostly through Slack, GitHub, email and Zoom.
