A NonGeek about Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana


(Jason) #1

Hello.
I like to collect Windows log and send it to a Linux server that use "Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana" for analysis but I can't find any useful guidance.
I found some pages like :
1- https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-logstash-and-kibana-to-centralize-logs-on-centos-7
2- https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-elasticsearch-logstash-and-kibana-elk-stack-on-centos-7
3- http://www.itzgeek.com/how-tos/linux/ubuntu-how-tos/how-to-install-elasticsearch-logstash-and-kibana-4-on-ubuntu-14-04-15-04.html

But all of them are for Linux and I don't know how can I send Windows log to a Linux server that use "Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana". I'm thankful if you show me useful guidance.

Thank you.

If you are doing event logs, look at winlogbeat, if they are just files then check out filebeat.

Any useful guide for configure it? With "winlogbeat" I don't need "Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana" ?

Have you checked out the documentation?

You still need at least Elasticsearch and Kibana.
