Adding of clients with the different index names


(Kranthi ) #1

Kindly suggest me how to add the filebeats with the different index names?
As of now,I just added two clients, but I am able to view only logs of one client. Logs of filebeat of other client is also fine, its saying its transferring the logs. But on kibana i am unable to view the logs.

Couple of questions:

Are your two instances of filebeat running from the same host or separate hosts?

Which index names are you using? In your screenshot I see the default index name filebeat-{version}-{date} being used, and your Kibana is configured with the filebeat-* index pattern. If your second filebeat creates indices that don't match this pattern, it is normal that you won't see the events generated by it.

Actually I am new to this, I can't get the idea what you are saying!
Could you please suggest me of adding two different hosts into the Kibana? Please it's important & emergency.

You said you have 2 filebeat clients. Are they running on the same or on separate computers?

Please paste the configuration (filebeat.yml) of each individual filebeat. Enclose the configuration in triple backticks like this:

```
content of filebeat.yml
```
