Logstash: since_db not getting created

Was playing with the since_db option and it appears that the sincedb file isn't getting created. Below is my Logstash File configuration. I have verified that I can create the file manually so there is no permission issue. Would appreciate if anyone can throw more light on the same.

input {
 file {
  path => "/home/tom/fileData/*.log"
  type => "log"
  sincedb_path => "/home/tom/sincedb"
  start_position => beginning

Can the user running logstash write to the sincedb_path location, if not that is what needs to get fixed. Other than that, your logstash configuration should work fine.
