Importing CSV to elasticsearch using Logstash

I am trying to import a CSV file to elasticsearch using Logstash. This is my config file:

input { 
      file {
        path => ["/home/suryakumar/Sample.csv"]
        start_position => "beginning"    

    filter {  
      csv {
          separator => ","
          columns => ["CompanyName","Year1","ETR","Debt_Equity_Ratio","Interest","Profit Before Tax","Deferred Tax Liabilities (Net)"]

    output {  
        elasticsearch {
            action => "index"
            hosts => [ "localhost:9200" ]
            index => "tax"
        stdout { }

while I run Logstash with this config file, I am getting this message.
I don’t know whether my data imported because I can’t see an index named ‘tax’ in my elasticsearch or in kibana.
Please help me solve this.
Note : I am using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS platform.


Did you run this config before you added the ES output? If so did you see output in the console?
If so, you need to read up on the since_db feature.
