After working with logstash for past few years, it is one of the best tools I’ve ever worked with. The flexibility to collect data from 100’s of devices, transform to any level and output/integrate to 100’s of devices will help n8n to have excellent flexiblity (at input, transformation & output stages)
Logstash brings collection and scalability to a different level.
- Input plugins : can integrate to event buses, any files, cloud-events, tcp, syslog … almost 100’s of out-of-box options
- Transformation plugins: Again any level of aggregation and transformation filters
- Output Plugins: Can output or integrate to any type of devices
Logstash can act as one-stop-shop and can be used as node of last resort
I’m not sure how to create a node with logstash, but once that’s done I can help in writing filters or logic examples to get it going
