### This is just a quick demo for getting a Logstash server up and running in AWS within minutes. After following the steps below, you'll have a Logstash server EC2 instance that will, by default, be listening on 5514/UDP and writing anything ingested to /tmp/logstash.out. Any updates you make or files you add to the configuration directory (/etc/logstash/conf.d) will automatically apply to the pipeline. Have fun!
## Detailed Steps
### 1. Navigate to your AWS console and go to **CloudFormation**.

### 3. Under "Choose a template", specify **https://s3-external-1.amazonaws.com/cf-templates-ea4xzo2mbmsf-us-east-1/201903172X-LogstashQuickDeploymnf8n3bxe9** as the S3 template URL and click **Next**. (A copy of the template is located here as logstashcloudformation.json along with the userdata that runs upon boot -- userdata.sh)
