I am trying to set up syslog-ng to elasticsearch, not using as the middleware. According to https://www.balabit.com/blog/elasticsearch-and-syslog-ng-fast-and-simple/

it is doable.  However, I am not finding an example that works for my config.

I have syslog-ng version 3.11
Elasticsearch 2.4.6

All running on one machine with Ubuntu 16.04.

My syslog-ng is standard with the @include for the conf.d directory.  In which I had hoped to create a working elsasticsearch.conf to define the how to send the logs.
Likewise I have syslog-ng-mod-elasticsearch installed.

Any help or pointing me to some examples would be great.
