Build a new filebeat


(Bad) #1

Hi,

I'd like to build a specific filebeat for our team.
We have many team in the company and all team wants to have their own filebeat so if a reinstall happens we will not overwrite their configs and don't touch any of theirs.

I'd like to build like an infra-filebeat package.

How I can do, what I have to be careful and how to do?

Which one is the easies way to do it, change the home directory,name etc ... I just want to run multiple filebeat :slight_smile:

So your team maintains a fork of filebeat?

First of all you need to setup a Go Development Environment and configure GOPATH. Next checkout the Beats repository as Documented here. Switch to $GOPATH/src/github.com/elastic/beats/filebeat and run make.
