Drops everything received Drops everything that gets to this filter.

This is best used in combination with conditionals, for example:

filter {
  if [loglevel] == "debug" {
    drop { }

The above will only pass events to the drop filter if the loglevel field is debug. This will cause all events matching to be dropped.


drop {
