I can use logstash with the binaries by specifying the config file like this
./logstash -f ../config/logstash-sample.conf
But when it is installed rather than using the binaries it seems their site says you start logstash as a service like this
sudo initctl start logstash
How can I start it as a service and specify the same config file I would use if i were using the binaries.
something like this although this command doesn't work
sudo initctl start logstash -f logstash-simple.conf
